The Wilkinson Memorial Observatory

The Wilkinson Memorial Observatory

One of the finest observatories open to the public in western Canada. Named after amateur astronomer and blacksmith Jack Wilkinson, a local blacksmith and machinist. In 1949, Jack built an 8-inch reflector telescope, through which local residents gazed at the moon, stars, planets and many other celestial wonders. Spend a night gazing at the wonders of the universe under the beautiful Saskatchewan Skies.

Here you will find a Celestron Ultima 11” 2800mm focal length telescope with eye pieces ranging from 40mm to 10.5mm and various filters and a GoTo Tracking System. See the amazing rings of planet Saturn, and follow the space station as it soars in silence through outer space.
