AAO Site Map

For first time visitors, this page gives an overview of what you will find on our site. Our site is for professional astronomers, amateur astronomers and those with an interest in astronomy. Under each page section I have added a "Designed for" line to help you navigate our web site.
Our site includes general information on the AAT and I especially recommend viewing David Malin's images.  We are currently making a page with information about the open times of the visitor centre at Siding Spring as well as a general public astronomy page.
