The picture on the left is a view looking west, showing the club's first telescope, a Meade 16 inch reflecting telescope, through the shutter. The picture on the right shows the current telescope, a Celestron 14 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain. To the right of the dome in both pictures is the control building, which is fully climate controlled and used for refuge during inclement weather, as well as for planning and meeting purposes.
