The Angell Hall Observatory

Between 1926 and 1994, there were two domes on the roof of Angell Hall. One dome held a 25 centimeter (10 inch) refractor and the other dome held a 38 centimeter (15 inch) reflector. These domes were dismantled and replaced with a single 40 centimeter reflecting telescope in 1994/1995. The following shows the Angell Hall telescopes before they were dismantled in 1994.
