Early Science Cycle - 2017A

3.6m Devasthal Optical Telescope (DOT)


The early science cycle - 2017A has started from 2nd of April, 2017. The Early Science cycle is for two months till 31st of May, 2017. 

  • Devasthal is 65 km from the nearest railway station (Kathgodam). For a list of trains between Kathgodam and other places, visit here.
  • Devasthal is about 90 km from the nearest airport at Pantnagar. For more information please visit here.
