The Meade 16-inch Schmidt Cassegrain is available for visual observing, and it is equipped with an SBIG ST9 CCD camera and ST10 filterwheel for training in astronomical photometry and color imaging. An STV autoguider provides an electronic finder field, simplifies long exposure imaging. The telescope is controlled by XmTel running on a computer in the roll roof, and it may also be operated from the main building in cold weather.
