Observing the night sky (PHY105) is a compulsory first-semester course
for first-year undergraduates doing dual-honours Astronomy with
Physics or Mathematics. It is also an optional course for
undergraduates with A-level (or equivalent) Physics and Maths.
PHY105 is a half-module, worth 10 credits, and is taught by Professor
Vik Dhillon. The course is in two parts. The first part, composed of
14 lectures, is on the Celestial Sphere. The second part, composed of
6 lectures, is on Telescopes.
All of the lecture notes, problem sheets, problem solutions and past
exam papers for this part of the PHY105 half-module can be found on
the web at:

I will
also be handing out a CD-ROM at the beginning of the course which
contains a complete set of the lecture notes.
