Ortega 0.8-m Telescope
new Olin Physical Sciences building features a large dome which
houses the Ortega 0.8-m (32-in) telescope. The telescope is funded
by the National Science Foundation, Florida Tech, and a generous
donation from James and Sarah Ortega. In addition, the building
features a large observing deck on the roof, which support 15 eight-inch
computer controlled telescopes for use by our students and faculty.
We now have Astronomy
& Astrophysics Lecture Series. Viewing sessions follow
the lectures, weather permitting.
