OTHER INFORMATION

The R.F. Joyce Observatory at West Melton, just outside Christchurch, is owned by the Canterbury Astronomical Society. It has several telescopes, ranging from a 5" Cooke refractor to a 16" Meade RCX400. Our dark skies render all the southern cosmos objects in stunning contrast and detail.
