Help us grow the observatory!
The Mount Allison Gemini Observatory was constructed with generous funding from the Marjorie Young Bell Endowment Fund at Mount Allison, University operating funds, as well as donations from alumni, staff, and friends of the university. This funded the concrete infrastructure, fence, domes, mounts, basic solar power, and the telescopes. The facility is now fully operational for on-site visual observing.
We are now raising the funds needed for phase two, which will significantly enhance the facility by adding modern astronomical imaging and spectroscopic facilities, as well as allowing robotic operation of the facility over the internet. As well, as you can expect, we also need funds for our outreach activities.
If you can donate some money towards this goal, that would be wonderful.
You can donate through the annual giving fund by telephone, mail, or online. Please specify "Astronomy Observatory" when donating. Thank you very much!
