Télescope - Observatoire

Bauduen Astronomical Observatory


The Bauduen astronomical observatory is located far from the lights of the cities, 5 minutes from the village. Evenings of discovery of the constellations and observation of the sky are offered all year round, and themed evenings (notably astro-musical) in summer.

The construction of this astronomical observatory began in 1992... Olivier had to master certain areas of expertise: it is a unique adventure in France, carried out alone without help.

The site's main telescope was put into service in 1994 and has been constantly improved since then. Professional class and ultra luminous, it is at your disposal, to allow you superb observations of celestial objects.
