The observatory's staff are members of the association and do their work voluntarily.

During the public showings at the 7 " Zeiss refractor telescope several objects are shown (depending on their actual visability): Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, the moon, open star clusters, globular star clusters, interstellar nebulae, planetary nebulae, double stars and galaxies. In special showings it is possible to observe the sun.

Two further instruments (7 " Starfire refractor and 16 " Newton reflector) can be used for the public presentation on the observation terrace. Furthermore the star constellations will be explained there. If possible, the International Space Station ISS and Iridium flares are shown.
