Will the observatory be open in March? Is it handicapped accessible?
We are currently finalizing our schedule for the Spring term. We should have observing later in March.
Unfortunately, the observatory is largely not handicapped accessible; one needs to climb a ladder/staircase to reach the main dome. We also set up portable telescopes outside of the building, but those are also likely to be difficult to observe through for people with mobility issues.
