Welcome at DIRN Observatory!

Exquisite Location ...
The DIRN Observatory ist located in the Austrian Alps at a sea level of about 1000 meters directly neighbouring the Kalkalpen National Park.

Perfect Nightsky ...
The location offers an extraordinary nightsky that, as can be seen in a recent scientific study, is nearly absolutely free of any light pollution and thus can be compared with the top-locations worldwide.

All Do-It-Yourself ...
The whole observatory including telescope, main mirror, fork mount, drives, cupola and building as well as the complete observatory software are self-planned and do-it-yourself.
