Ray Zit Observatory
This observatory currently houses a pair of telescopes. It is named for Ray Zit who donated his 14" f/5 telescope and this observatory was built to house it. Ray was an active member for several decades and served as Observatory Director from 1977-80..
In 2014 it was replaced with a pair of telescopes with GOTO capability so they can
be easily used by our membership. They are the M-Scope (a Celestron Advanced
and the F-Scope (a Celestron C14 on a CGE PRO computerized equatorial mount). The observatory was modified to effectively
raise the roof in order to provide more head room for the telescopes.
