|Who We Are and What we Do
Just north of Southampton, in the quiet village of Toothill, stands one of the finest observatories in Hampshire. It houses a 14" Meade and numerous smaller telescopes.
Owned and run by Solent Amateur Astronomers, it's doors open regularly to the public, when every one is most welcome - see schedule of open nights.
We also have a comprehensive programme of talks at Oasis Academy, Lordshill to which the public are also invited.

Owing to impending construction works to be undertaken by Southern Water at our Toothill Observatory site, the Observatory will not open to members of the general public until further notice.
It is intended to resume open nights and group visits when the works are completed.
