If so, then you may be interested in knowing that Pen-y-bryn is situated in a Bortle-4 area, where conditions are dark enough to allow us to photograph some of the most challenging targets. We also have a 4-hectare site under Bortle-2 skies just 10 minutes away that rivals some of the world’s most notable astrophotography destinations.

While winter is the best time to view our night sky, when the viewing hours are longest, whenever the night is clear we have our telescopes out and shooting, so anytime is a good time as far as we’re concerned. Contact us for more information and to make your booking.
