Being a volunteer Star Viewing Night (SVN) host at Perth Observatory is great fun and rewarding. The public love coming along to see the night sky, and kids become enthused about science and astronomy.

I’ve always wanted to get some nice astro photographs of the Perth Observatory Star Viewing Nights, partly as a historic record and partly for use by the Perth Observatory as promotional material. As a host I usually don’t have time to take photographs, and so such a task required a dedicated trip to the Perth Observatory, on Saturday the 1st March 2014.

Below are some photographs of the Star Viewing Night activities at the Perth Observatory.
