About the observatory
 The opening ceremony of the educational astronomical observatory at Andijan State University was on August 30, 2008. This was the result of the joint work of the Ulugh Beg Astronomical Institute of UzAS and Andijan State University. The highest point of the Bogishamol recreation area near of the Andijan city was chosen as the site for construction. The observatory is equipped with a standard scale reflector telescope with aperture 30 cm, which was donated by the Ulugh Beg Astronomical Institute to Andijan State University. A telescope will appear in Andijan, which is available to young students, scientists of the Fergana Valley, as well as ordinary astronomy lovers and students.

 In addition to scientific projects, the Ulugh Beg Astronomical Institute also carries out general educational projects. The main task of the latter is to popularize astronomy, as well as to assist educational institutions with astronomical departments. Within the framework of these projects, it is planned to create a whole network of scientific and educational observatories on the basis of the universities of the republic.

 The telescope of the observatory will be used for laboratory, term papers and theses of university students. It should also be noted that the potential of this tool allows it to be used not only in practical training sessions, but also to perform research tasks.
