UC Berkeley Observatory

UC Berkeley Observatory. Installation of dome and equipment by Observatory Solutions.

Project Details

The observatory was part of the Campbell Hall replacement project that started in 2013. Observatory Solutions installed the dome in December of 2014. Although it rained the entire week, we were able to get the dome installed and initial testing complete.

Observatory Solutions was back onsite in January 2015 for installation of the pier, installation of the mount and telescope, setup of the dome and telescope automation system, system configuration and testing, and observatory training.

The observatory consists of the following equipment:
