Because of this we have formed an observing committee, composed of fanatic students who love to observe and are trained to work with these telescopes. This committee is in charge of organizing free observing nights, open to Kaiser members and anyone from the faculty.

Anyone interested can join the observing poule mailing list by emailing kaiser [at] strw.leidenuniv.nl
For people from outside of the faculty we suggest to contact the WLS for similar projects.
