The Astronomical Society of Australia has been
asked by STANDARDS AUSTRALIA to compile a list of "designated" optical
observatories that are valuable resources for (i) research, (ii) education
and (iii)community use. The ASA is the final arbiter of whether any
particular observatory is so designated. Attaining listing as
a "Designated Optical Observatory" should assist the observatory in
presenting a case for protection against obtrusive lighting to local
Status as a designated observatory will be reviewed every 2 years based
on calendar year annual reports submitted in January. Additional
information can be mailed.
Please fill out the annual report form below and
submit it. It will be emailed for you. A Text
version is available if your browser doesn't handle forms.
