The Frank P. Brackett Observatory has been helping students explore the sky in Claremont since 1908 with its unique complement of telescopes, instruments, and clear weather. Since then our observatory has been expanded and renovated to include a multimedia classroom, computer controlled 14" telescopes and modern electronic CCD cameras. At this site you can learn more about the activities and capabilities of the Brackett Observatory, which is a great facility for learning about observing, and viewing planets and stars. Enjoy!

Also check out the Brackett Observatory Project page which gives more info on the operating of the Brackett Telescopes and our Brackett Observatory Resources Page, which links to ongoing class projects, and detailed tutorials on observing and data analysis.
