The Albanyà Observatory is fully automated and equipped with state-of-the-art astronomical instruments, including the largest telescope in the province of Girona. Its advanced facilities cater to both astronomy outreach for the public and scientific research for professional astronomers.
The main instrument of the observatory is a 16-inch (406 mm) Meade ACF catadioptric telescope with an F8 focal ratio, mounted on a 10Micron GM3000 HPS equatorial mount.
The secondary instrument is a triple apochromatic refractor TS ED80mm, providing the observatory with high versatility for wide-field astrophotography and solar chromosphere observation using a Hydrogen Alpha Daystar Quark Chromosphere filter (0.3-0.5A).
The main camera is a Moravian G4-9000, equipped with the KAF-9000 chip, mounted on a 7-position filter wheel containing narrowband H-Alpha, OIII, SII, and photometric Johnson-V filters, as well as a special filter for exoplanet research.
The secondary camera is an Atik Infinity video camera, suitable for video astronomy sessions with projectors.
The observatory features a fully automated 4-meter dome.
