Milkyweb Astronomical Observatory Guide




If you are looking for an observatory, you can either

1a. enter the tld-countrycode in the form on the left, or

1b. use the map in the upper left corner to select a continent and in the second step the country out of an alphabetical list.

2. Then click on the country, and you will get a list ob observatories (if there are any in my database).

Publish your own data

Anybody, who has his own observatory (with no respect to its size) is invited to fill in the questionnaire and in this way publish the information and make it searchable via the database. I hope, that some new contacts may result from this.
