The Sullivan Observatory
The club owns and maintains the Sullivan Observatory which is located just northeast of the city of Keene, NH. The observatory was constructed in the fall of 1970.
There are two permanent telescopes kept at the observatory. One is a 12 1/2" Newtonian reflector with an equatorial mount. (Kingsburry Corporation in Keene donated the mirror for the 12 1/2" and club members constructed the body on the equatorial mount.) The other is a 15" f/4.5 Obsession reflector which has a Dobsonian mount and is portable for off-site events.
Specific directions to the Sullivan Observatory may be obtained by contacting the club Secretary.
