The routes are divided into two distinct phases: the first purely theoretical in which an attendant will make a small overview on astronomy (duration 40min) while the second allows entry into the telescope dome where all participants will have the opportunity to observe bodies celestial, nebulae, stars (depending on weather conditions).

It ‘was this second part to us impressed, certainly not happen every day to observe the sky with a telescope, let alone with a motorized within a 6 meters high dome.
