FREE limited capacity 10 minute tours of the brand new Annie Maunder Astrographic Telescope (AMAT) with a knowledgeable guide. 

Visit the brand new Annie Maunder Astrographic Telescope (AMAT) in a free, whistle-stop tour of the facility. A screen next to the instruments will show off either a live view of the Sun or past recorded footage and your guide will give a brief overview the types of astronomy the telescopes can be used for. In good weather, these brief tours will run alongside free solar viewing from Flamsteed Astronomical Society outside with small telescopes.
