Our Observing Site

SIGMA has a permanent observing site "The Bothy", thanks to the co-operation of the directors of Highland Gliding Club.

The site has excellent low horizons to the east, south and west, not quite so good to the north but this means that it is well shielded from any sky glow from the lights of Elgin.

During the darker months (clear skies permitting!) SIGMA aims to open The Bothy for viewing, for SIGMA members, every Friday and Saturday night from 7.30pm with Club telescopes available.

Please contact Stan Barber for further information.

SIGMA also holds public observing sessions at The Bothy. Please visit our Upcoming Events page to find out more.

Our monthly meetings are held in Birnie Village Hall which is situated in Thomshill near the Distillery. Non-members are always welcome.
