The observatory at SUNY Oneonta offers students and members of the public the opportunity to view the night sky through a variety of fixed and mobile telescopes:

Mounted Telescopes

Mobile Telescopes

1-meter JMI NTT-40

In addition, we have a collection of 4-inch refracting telescopes that are typically housed in sheds on the observatory grounds. These refractor sheds are currently being replaced or rehabilitated, with the first one reopening in the summer of 2014.
