Observatories

VBAS operates the Conrad Swanson Observatory, built in 1956, which houses our 21 inch Newtonian telescope and the Wilhelm Angele Observatory, built in the early 1980s, which houses our Celestron C-16 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. The Swanson Observatory is easy to spot with its traditional dome. The Angle Obseratory features a roll-off roof that gives a wide view of the sky for our Star Party visitors.  In addition to our Library, optical workshop, and members' telescope storage area, the Wilhelm Angele Observatory also includes the Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger solar telescope.

Watch our home page for details about upcoming observing and training opportunities!  If you have any questions, contact our Observatory Director (it is me, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it !).
