Coordinates : 44.064070, 10.803883 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : The observatory's privileged location allows to take photographs astonomiche with very low amounts of light pollution; only to Southeast there is a residue of light pollution coming from the valley of Pistoia. Orienting ourselves, instead, to the North / North-East we have the best sky. Recently it has been open to the public park in which we will find a reproduction of the solar system to scale and some futuristic sculptures on the celestial objects, which allow the realization of artistic composition.

Recommended equipment : camera, tripod and a good zoom and bright wide-angle for easier astrophotography lovers; while for those who want to carry out more sophisticated CCD imaging and telescope with all the attached equipment.

Best months : The summer period allows to stay until dawn without the risk of feeling the cold and the deterioration of the batteries of the equipment. Although the winter, with snow, really has a special charm.

How to get there : To get to the Observatory starting from Pistoia have to take the SS66 up "Tizzoro Field", after follow to "Maresca" and later for "Gavinana". After take "Via Pratorsi" and continue for about 3 Km and you will find ample parking in "Pian de 'Termini." E 'can also arrive from the Lucca side of "Bagni di Lucca" taking the SS12 up to "La Lima", then follow signs to "San Marcello Pistoiese" and "Via della Battaglia" until you reach "Via Pratorsi" and follow it for about 3 Km and you will find ample parking in "Pian de 'Termini'.

Visits : The observatory is run by members of the GAMP (Amateur Astronomers Group of Pistoia mountains). The entrance to the "Star" Park and the parking is free. As to access to the Observatory you have to book at the Public Library of San Marcello phoning 0573/621289; The openings to the public are on Friday and Saturday night during the winter, while in summer also on Mondays. The morning openings for solar observation are on Tuesday and Thursday in winter, and in summer on Tuesday and Sunday.

Notes : If you are lucky you can also see other wildlife, such as deer, foxes and wild boars.
