Midtown Observatory

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-Chr├ętien 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.
