About the observatory
In 2014, it was planned to install a 50 cm telescope for Karshi State University. A detailed assessment of the technical condition and modernization of the 50-cm reflector telescope for the target task was carried out, and the telescope was transported to the educational observatory in Karshi. In July 2014, a 50 cm telescope was installed on the territory of Karshi State University.

The use of a new astronomical observatory in Karshin research allows students of the Physics and Mathematics Department to practice, conduct laboratory work on astronomy and optics, conduct popular science lectures for schools and lyceums, and create new laboratory work using a telescope. Students of the physics and mathematics direction acquire special significance with astronomical equipment and telescopes, conduct observations and use the data obtained to describe their final qualifying works.
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. Through the joint efforts of the Ulugh Beg Astronomical Institute of UzAS and the Higher Educational Institutions of the Republic, educational observatories for Andijan State University, Samarkand State University, Tashkent Pedagogical University named after Nizami, National University of Uzbekistan, Karshi State University were put into operation.

The telescopes of the observatories carry out laboratory, term papers and theses of university students. It should also be noted that the potential capabilities of the tools allow them to be used not only in practical training sessions, but also to perform research tasks.
