A Backstage Tour of the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

Explore parts unseen at the Harvard Observatory.

The Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics hosts free monthly tours and lectures of the Observatory. I was lucky to catch a behind the scene tour. Here are photos of parts rarely seen by the public. At the Observatory, I looked through special telescopes at the sun and moon. I also toured the computer room that controls multiple telescopes on the roof. At the Micro Observatory Website you can remotely operate their telescopes from your own home.
