The Midtown Observatory sits atop the Science Building on Western's Midtown campus. It is used for classes, undergraduate research and public viewing nights. The Midtown Observatory will soon house a 14-inch Ritchey-Chrétien telescope on a height-adjustable mounting with a computer-controlled tracking system. An astrocamera, visible and infrared-sensitive photoelectric photometers, a television system and a CCD camera are available for use with this telescope. Two Coronado Solar Max 70 telescopes (H-alpha and Ca II K line wavelengths), an 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector, three 6-inch Schmidt-Newtonian reflectors and several smaller telescopes are also part of the Observatory's equipment.
