We have many types and sizes of telescopes here at our Observatory. Our two largest telescopes are both reflectors - the 20" and the 16". Our 20" telescope is the one-tenth scale model of the Hale Telescope at Mount Palomar in California. We also have 14", 12", 10", 8", and 6" reflectors that were built by members of the Elmira-Corning Astronomical Society. We have 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain reflectors in addition to 4" refractors and a solar telescope. All of these telescopes are on display at the Observatory. Some of them can be used by the public during our Friday night observing sessions.

If you have any questions, please call the Observatory at 607-962-9494 or email Deborah Dann, Director of the Observatory, at dann@corning-cc.edu.
