OTHER INFORMATION

Our site features a 16” Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, a 4” APO refractor, and a 25" Dobsonian telescope– the largest in Connecticut available to the public. The observatory is open year-round for free public viewing every Wednesday from 8-10pm (weather permitting), and we host monthly lectures (usually at 8PM on the third Tuesday) by astrophysicists and researchers from all over the Northeast.
