CWU Installs New Telescope

CWU's new science building is home to one of Washington's largest telescopes. The $350,000, 24 inch CWU research telescope was installed in the Science II observatory March 13. The new telescope is networked and remotely operable. It lives inside an automated dome and is outfitted with up-to-date instrumentation. The new observatory is a centerpiece of the physics department, and it will provide a range of extraordinary opportunities.
