Our Observing Site

SIGMA has an observing site just inside the entrance to Easterton Airfield, Birnie - 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 us for further information.

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

Our monthly meetings are held in Lhanbryde Community Centre (IV30 8QQ). Non-members are always welcome.
