Telescope use is very restricted. How odd.
Listen to the schedule for the university's telescope; it is only open once a week for two hours a night, weather permitting. Does this seem like real science or a PT Barnum style sideshow? Modern astronomy is just an updated and reimagined version of the same old superstitious fantasy it always was. Astronomy was always mysticism and always required a Platonic interpretation of the heavenly shadows. Astronomers always scanned the heavens for signs of the future and today they still engage in the same religious like superstitious behavior. Angels and devils have been replaced with black holes, quarks, and other quantum foaming multiversal, cartoon nonsense.
Bait & Switch Black Holes & Modern Science Nonsense Explored
Astronomy is as much a superstitious art form as astrology. In fact astronomy is the earlier word. Astrology as a word did not exist until some two hundred years after the word astronomy was coined. Astronomy has long been used as the basis for a religion that involved faith that the Sun was the center of the Universe of Fixed Stars, The heliocentric model of Newton's era is a far cry from the patchwork of contradictory nonsense sold as fact today. The modern Big Bang Universe would seem insane to Sir Isaac Newton, who was a Sun worshipping astronomical religious zealot.

The Human Mind is Programmed To Believe In Lies
Observational data is controlled and massaged to fit theory. Illogically premised mathematical formula is evidence of nothing. Peer review is peer pressure and proves nothing. Only demonstrable principle can be used as evidence for a theory, NASA cartoon nonsense is evidence of nothing but the power the highly edited moving image has over the human imagination.
Human beings possess what are known as mirror neurons and this is the means by which we emulate the behavior of all we experience. We emulate the behavior of the natural world and of each other and in this manner our very real human nature has been long weaponized and used against us. We tend to all too easily accept the obvious illogical catechisms sold by the various social shepherds we are supposed to relate to and follow. We are supposed to have our thinking programmed into us. We simply need to cleverly parrot and echo religious catechism and we must never question underlying assumptions, like all good religious folk do. We must feel the need to be part of some kind of social flock so we can feel really good about ourselves as we get fleeced. This is the real endless "golden" fleece.
