to the Brackett Obsevatory
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.
