Astronomical Observatory, Planetariums, Museums, School Trips, Scout and Guide Visits, Special Events, Reflector Telescope, Public Programs, Star Talks Night Programs, Friends and Family Programs, Drop In-Nights, School Programs, After-School Enrichment Programs, Continuing Education Classes, Cub, Brownie, Guide & Scout Nights Programs

Its 74" mirror (1.88 meters) made it the second largest telescope in the world - The Observatory itself is 61 feet (18.6 meters) - The land (about 180 acres), buildings and Great Telescope cost a total of $352,000

It was a most interesting visit. We got to see the vacuum chamber used to re-coat the mirror and behind the scenes on how they get equipment up and down. We also visited the library and the workshop. All in all a great tour of behind the scenes workings. Of course we saw the telescope and got a fascinating description of how it works. We all looked through the spotting telescope. Something for everyone. I would recommend it.

This is my fave library amongst all, specially our university's. Its quit and all. I just hoped if they could remain open on weekends as well untill 8 ! But all in all this place is blessed. Even sometimes u can enjoy the live music playing for different seremonies. The place gets even more magical.
