Visits to the NOT
The Observatory organizes visits to several telescopes (tipically Magic, GCT
and WHT) every summer. The Nordic Optical Telescope sometimes participates in
those Open Days.
The dates of the Open Days are usually known by May-June each year.
Outside the Open Days, the NOT is not normally open for visits. In special
cases (scientific or educational groups), and subject to availability of
staff, visits may be arranged by contact to the NOT office
in San Antonio (Breña Baja), no
less than two weeks in advance.
The contact to arrange the visits is the admin
staff (Loida Fernandez y Raquel Lopez).
Reaching our offices
The NOT offices at San Antonio are located next doors (and connected)
to the Italian Telescopio Nazionale Galileo offices. We've prepared
a map showing the location. You can
also follow directions in this
Google Map, leading you
straight to our front door from Santa Cruz (it's easy to work out the
way coming from the Airport). Note that the office is at street
level, and the entrance is just next to a pedestrian crossing.
