The (Old) Seven Hills Observatory Reflector


This photo was taken by John Kozak. This is the former Seven Hills Observatory 17.5" fork mounted equatorial reflector.  It was dismantled in March of 2012 to make way for the newly designed much improved scope.  It was created over a ten year period as the result of a joint effort between Rick Shaffer, formerly of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena California and Mark Urwiller - the observatory director.
