The Eric Tomney Memorial Observatory (ETMO) will be officially opened on Saturday 30th September 2023 by Prof. Martin Hendry of University of Glasgow.
Events start from 12 noon with lectures in the theatre in the Mugdock Visitor Centre courtyard followed by the official opening ceremony and ribbon cutting from 1400.
After the ceremony there will be observatory tours and equipment demonstrations.  There will also be solar telescopes setup to allow safe viewing of the sun, sunspots and other solar features, all this is weather permitting.  ASG merchandise and memberships will be available during the day.
In the evening, again weather permitting, we will have telescopes setup for night-time viewing.  Events will finish at 2200, or earlier if the weather is not kind to us.  Photo by Eileen Gibson.
