Observatory

The Sacramento State Observatory consists of a 14-inch Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain reflector housed in a dome on the roof of Amador Hall, and a 7.5 foot Small Radio Telescope (SRT) mounted on the roof of Sequoia Hall. Each telescope is computer controlled. The 14-inch telescope is equipped with a CCD camera and a set of broad band visible light filters. The SRT is equipped with a 21-cm radio receiver . We also have six 8-inch Celestron reflectors and a 4-inch refractor used for astronomy lab courses and public observing nights, and a set of neutral density and H-alpha filters for solar observing.
