Fuertes Observatory, home to the historic 12" Irving Porter Church Memorial Telescope, is open to the public for observing (if clear) and tours every Friday night from 8pm to midnight. The Cornell Astronomical Society, Cornell University's student astronomy club, runs the public open house nights and offers many opportunities for students to get involved. In addition to the 12" refractor, the club has an Obsession 15", Celestron 14" SCT, Orion 10" Dobsonian, and imaging equipment.
