  The Harwich Observatory - click here for the Star Calendar


Our facility located at The Harwich Elementary School in Harwich, Massachusetts offers ideal dark-sky viewing conditions and a variety of equipment to explore the cosmos. 

The observatory houses the following--

  Tectron Dobsonian-mount Reflector with 32 inch diameter mirror
Orion Dobsonian 10 inch Reflector with plug-in computer module
Astro-Physics 6 inch Refractor on German Equatorial mount
Dobsonian-mount Reflector with 8 inch mirror
Binoculars, spectra scope, lenses, filters and other attachments

The observatory serves as a location for the community and interested parties to view the wonders of the skies; as a science lab for students to engage in cosmic discoveries and log data with other observatories; and as a satellite facility for college students who need to conduct research in a dark-sky, light- pollution-free environment.
