I was part a Church Study Group visit to the R.O. on 19.4.2012 on a dull evening, but the experience was far from dull with two excellent guides, and even though the giant telescope does not work, the views of the galaxy on computer after the view of the city from the roof-top was a sparkling experience. It seems strange that the R.O. does not have even a small telescope for visitors, but it was fascinating to learn of the production on site of lens etc for use throughout the world. Congratulations and a big thanks. Completed the evening with an excellent supper at 'Sambuca', a fine Italian restaurant,on Causewayside on the return to the city centre.
