Learn about globular clusters, nebulas and planets when you see them with your own eyes. Come to SkyWatch at the Henry Buhl, Jr. Observatory and get up-close and personal with amazing celestial objects. Our 16-inch Meade LX200 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope shows you great detail of the planets. Best of all, our expert stargazers can explain exactly what you're seeing. You can't do this at home!
