Stockport Observatory is just 3kms from the Glenhaven Park campsite and houses the largest telescope in South Australia. Located in the small town of Stockport (6kms north-east of Hamley Bridge) approximately 80kms north ofAdelaide. It provides a convenient astronomical facility away from the light pollution which surrounds Adelaide (population 1 million).
The Society owns two large observatories in Stockport. One of them (foreground) houses an 12-inch (30cm) Schmidt-Cassegrain, while the Charles Todd Observatory (background) houses the Society’s largest telescope at present – the Jubilee Telescope.
