Eschenberg Observatory, Switzerland

With a budget of only 65.0000 CHF, but with more than 2,000 working hours put in by volunteers, the Astronomische Gesellschaft Winterthur established the Eschenberg Observatory in 1979. Initially its facilities were very spartan, but the observatory has evolved into an established regional cultural and educational institution—and also into a well-known observing station for near-earth asteroids and comets.
