Glenlea Astronomical Observatory (GAO)
The Winnipeg Centre operates an observatory at the University of Manitoba’s Glenlea Research Station. Our main instrument is a 12" Meade LX200, which is housed in an Ash dome. The observatory site is fully equipped with a concrete pad for setting up telescopes as well as tables for charts and accessories to be laid out on. Included on site, is a warm room and a composting toilet.
The warm room houses an IBM-compatible computer used for CCD imaging, photometry, and star chart generation. These facilities are available for year-round member use. THe dome can be used by members in good standing, have been members for at least one year, and have completed a short training program.
