Kanzelhoehe Solar Observatory

The Kanzelhoehe Solar Observatory is operated by the Institute of Geophysics, Astrophysics and Meteorology (IGAM) of the University of Graz, Austria. It is located near Villach, close to the Italian and Slovenian border. Operated continuously and devoted also to Solar surveillance since its foundation in 1943 it houses a rich archive of observations.

Konkoly Observatory

The Konkoly Observatory of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences has evolved from the private observatory of Miklos Konkoly-Thege. Konkoly founded his observatory in 1871 in Ogyalla. Twenty-nine years later he donated the telescopes and instruments to the Hungarian state. The construction of Piszkesteto Mountain Station started in 1958. Three telescopes currently operate there: a 60/90 cm Schmidt (since 1962), a 50 cm Cassegrain (since 1966) and an 1 m RCC (since 1974).
