The Mount Laguna Observatory 40-inch Telescope Building

Walk south from the Harrington Visitors' Center, and the first building you will see, up the knoll to your left, is the dome containing the Mount Laguna Observatory 40-inch telescope. The relocation of this telescope to Mount Laguna is the result of substantial contributions of building expertise, labor, and material by a number of companies in the San Diego area, as well as funds raised by SDSU and the University of Illinois.
