Why Carlsberg?

In 1984 the Carlsberg Science Foundation (funded by the brewery) in Denmark contributed much of the funding for the relocation of the telescope from Brorfelde, Denmark to La Palma and the conversion to automatic operation. This resulted in the meridian circle becoming much more efficient.

It is only a rumour that we have a well stocked beer cellar!


Probably the best
meridian telescope
in the world.
