For the last 8 months or so I’ve been studying Astronomy at Swinburne. As luck would have it there is a volunteer run observatory here in Melbourne at Mount Burnett.
Late last year there were a few open nights, however nature always got in the way with visibility.
However, there was finally some luck! I went up earlier in the week and here are some pictures of the observatory and a photo of the moon taken from my iphone.
I highly recommend heading up there. I have put some links below with more information.
