In the previous years, the living pavillion (main HQ building) and the dome for the 60cm telescope have been constructed on the site. The summit itself was reserved for the construction of the new telescope "Milanković", with an automated dome and an auxiliary building for technical equipment, service and computer systems. AZ1400 "Milankovic" 1.4 m big telescope has arrived on 28th of April 2016 which was mounted in temporary roll roof pavilion. Today it resides in new pavilion with automated dome.
New pavilion for 1.4m telescope Milanković
As satellite data shows, Mt. Vidojevica is one of the few places remaining in Serbia with a dark night sky. This year we will initiate a detailed measuring campaign to quantify the astro-climate conditions on the summit itself. These measurements are necessary for the efficient exploitation of the future instruments. An automatic meteorological station, all-sky camera and a seeing monitor are placed on the summit.
