The Monash University Observatory: equipment and research

  • J. L. Innis (a1), K. Thompson (a1) and D. W. Coates (a1)

Extract

The Monash Observatory, located at Mount Burnett, Victoria, seventy kilometres east of the city of Melbourne, at a latitude of 38° S has a 0.45-m Cassegrainian and a 0.25-m Newtonian telescope. Both are equipped for photoelectric photometry, with microcomputer-based data logging systems. The 0.45-m has recently replaced the observatory's original 0.4-m Newtonian. Our site is near the coast, and has less than 20% photometric weather. Access to the telescopes and facilities of Mount Stromlo and Siding Spring Observatories (MSSSO) increases our observing time and the scope of our research. For a description of the Monash Observatory at mid-1984 see Coates et al, (1984).
