Patrons and Members Telescope Appeal

Help us to transform the Altazimuth Pavilion into a working observatory for the first time in over 60 years and purchase state of the art equipment to capture incredible moments in our skies so that they can be shared and seen by all, inspiring the next generation of astronomers. 

How you can help

We’re looking to raise £100,000 for this project, which will allow us to purchase two new telescopes allowing us to capture and stream images of lunar, deep sky and solar targets here in the heart of Greenwich. Work will also take place to restore the Grade II Listed Altazimuth Pavilion.

By giving to the campaign you’ll be helping us to transform the Royal Observatory Greenwich into a working observatory once more. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a landmark moment in the Museum’s history.
