Amateur Astronomical Observatories
Examples of small observatories that individual amateur astronomers have built for personal use. I started this list when doing research before building my own observatory . I got a lot of good ideas by looking at what others had done. Perhaps you will, too :-) Building a small observatory is not all that hard. A simple roll-off roof design can be built in a few days with simple tools and materials easily available in your local building supply store. A dome is much more complicated but still can be done with more careful planning. Or you can buy a kit. Hardcopy More Small Astronomical Observatories

Orbital Telescopes
Since the early years of spaceflight, the advantages of astronomical observing above the Earth's atmosphere were recognized, and led to the introduction of astronomical instruments on spacecraft, i.e., astronomical observatories in space (in most cases, in Earth's orbit). Please note that this list is not complete in specific Solar research satellites, and does not include planetary probes.

    Some astronomical observatories have existed in Wales during the past two centuries. No major instutional observatories have been set up, but a few observatories of modest size were erected.
    Public and institutional observatories
    A few public and institutional observatories have been set up. These have included:
    Private observatories
    Some observatories have been built by individuals. These have included the following:
    • Nathaniel Pigott (d. 1804) and his son Edward Pigott (1753-1825) erected an observatory with a transit circle and a six-foot focal length achromatic refractor at their estate at Frampton in the Vale of Glamorgan in the 1770's.
    • Robert Roberts (1777-1836) erected an observatory at his home in Holyhead in the 19th century. It was situated on a tower and, although nothing remains today, the structure has provided the name of the street where it once stood: Tower Gardens.

    Modern astronomical observatories typically contain one or more permanentlymounted telescopes contained in buildings with a rotating or removable dome.
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Observatory of Strasbourg An observatory is a location used for observing terrestrial and/or celestial events. Astronomy astrology climatology geology ... meteorology and volcanology are examples of disciplines for which observatories have been constructed. Historically, observatories were as simple as containing a sextant (for measuring the distance between stars ) or Stonehenge (which has some alignments on astronomical phenomena). Modern astronomical observatories typically contain one or more permanently mounted telescopes contained in buildings with a rotating or removable dome . Beginning in the 1940's, radio telescopes were built and began to detect significant radio sources in the universe. Such an instrument, or a collection of them, with outbuildings for such things as control centres, data reduction centers, and maintenance are called radio observatories . Some of the major ones are at Jodrell Bank in England, Arecibo , Puerto Rico, Parkes in N.S.W., Australia, Socorro, in NM, U.S.A., Mauna Kea , HI, USA, and Kokino in Macedonia. The largest observatory in the equatorial belt is

    Review Small Astronomical Observatories Patrick Moore ( ed
    Springer-Verlag, 1996 - ISBN 3-650-19913-6 - pp.ix + 229 - DM 48 (paperback)]
    While many forms of astronomical observation can still be readily conducted with a minimum of setting up, the ongoing 'CCD revolution' has again brought to the fore the value and convenience of having telescopic and other equipment housed in a permanent observatory. Local light pollution need no longer necessarily be seen as an obstacle to observing, and around the world there must be many individuals and organisations contemplating the construction of observatories, even in urban locations. This volume is aimed at them. Small Astronomical Observatories is the latest title in Springer's 'Practical Astronomy' series edited by Patrick Moore, and like its companion volumes draws on the experience and expertise of several authors. Twenty-five articles describe, with varying levels of detail, observatories constructed by lone amateurs, schools and other educational bodies. There are clearly two main approaches to observatory building: the dome, and the run-off roof. The aesthete may plump for the elegance of the former, while the pragmatist will happily settle for the utility and comparative ease of construction of the latter. Nuggets of useful information abound - again reflecting the authors' wide experience. For instance, the use of a piece of old carpet on a concrete floor may save that dropped eyepiece, and serves to insulate the observer's feet from some of the cold. A gap between the floor and telescope mount reduces vibration. Eric Strach rotates the roof of his solar observatory on roller-skate wheels, while Terry Platt's dome runs on golf balls!

    Astronomical observatories in the pacific northwest
    Stargazing is alive and well in the Pacific Northwest. Tour 11 observatories in Washington and Oregon. Descriptions of sites, facilities, equipment and visiting opportunities.
    C.J. Baker, an amateur astronomer living in Woodinville, Washington, has rarely been able to see the stars from his home. His private star parties are more notable for their encounters with startled wildlife and early morning delivery people. On one night a opossum ran out of the bushes into his leg and promptly fell over dead. Later, about 3:00 AM, a startled newspaper deliveryman saw this in his headlights: a man standing in the ditch, one hand over his eyes and the other grasping huge binoculars. Was it appropriate or even safe to offer this person help? Would you? With such dedication to stargazing C.J. has visited only one observatory. He doesn’t know where they are or how to visit them. Yet even in the soggy, cloudy, light-polluted Puget Sound area near C.J.’s home there are two observatories, both open to the public. In the Pacific Northwest states of Washington and Oregon there are at least eleven observatories. A tour of these eleven would take you through the diverse facilities of large university owned observatories to state parks to owner- built, out-in-the-boonies observatories. Viewing conditions range from the cloudy skies of the west to the clear, dry, desert skies of the eastern regions to the problem of light pollution just about everywhere.
