Per Aspera Ad Astra
to Per Aspera Ad Astra. We are a small company that runs a mobile observatory based on the Sardinian mountain of Montiferru not far from Oristano on the west coast (Osservatorio Astronomico di Montiferru). The observatory offers 5-day or bespoke courses in observational astronomy to teams of university students, amateur astronomers, and anyone else interested in broadening their horizons. We are planning to build permanent structures, which will allow us to invite groups of school children and university students to the observatory without cost during weekends.
is to deliver high-quality training in observational astronomy, provide access to high-end telescopes to amateurs, thrill and delight casual visitors with heavenly vistas, and perform astronomical research.
