Is the money refunded when there is bad weather on the booked date? Unfortunately, we do not refund in case of bad weather.

If I provide my own telescope and equipment, will the observatory staff install it in the dome? Yes. However, it will be a separately paid service. The price of the installation will be determined on the basis of the number of man-hours and the cost of the necessary materials. Of course, you can install your equipment yourself.
