OTHER INFORMATION

The Stjornuskodunarfelag Seltjarnarness (The Icelandic Word Stjornuskodunarfelag can be translated to "Amateur Astronomical Society") is the only amateur astronomical society in Iceland. It is composed of about 250 people who share interest in astronomy and stargazing. The society is located in Seltjarnarnes (hence the name), which is a suburb of the capital Reykjavik and has a small room in Valhusaskoli (an elementary school). On top of the roof is a dome where the society’s main telescope, a JMI NGT-18, is kept. The NGT is an 18 inch Newtonian reflector, the biggest telescope in Iceland and members of the society have full access to it.
