16" RC Optical Systems Telescope

The primary equipment used for CCD imaging at the observatory is a 28.3" (0.72 meter) fork-mounted Astroworks F3.1 Hyperbolic Astrograph with a SBIG STL 11000 camera mounted at the prime focus.

Previous to the 28.3" Astroworks instrument, the primary telescope was an RC Optical Systems F8.4 Ritchey Chretien carbon fiber truss telescope with a SBIG STL 11000 camera.
