Grenland and surroundings area Astronomy Society (Grenland og Omegn Astronomiske Forening, GAF for short) is a small Norwegian Amateur Astronomical Society. Located in the Grenland area, in Telemark. The biggest town is Skien, and the name Grenland is used for the area that incorporates the towns Skien, Porsgrunn, Bamble (Brevik and Langesund). There are over 100 000 people in this area, and with only 30 members - we have certainly the basis for growth. Any good ideas on how we can get more members are welcome! We need new members!
Well, because of this, and the fact that the target for this society is the population of Grenland, we have chosen not to translate our web pages into English. However, if you are interested, below is some more info about us, and some images of the observatory and its surroundings. Enjoy! -)

|The Observatory seen from the South West, the Solar panels are now gone - we now have house current 220V.|

|The big trees in front of the building (to the left) are now gone (and all the small ones also), and the barbecue place has grown a bit also - new pictures are in order. ;-)|
