Welcome to the Mount Stony Brook Observatory!
Mount Stony Brook Observatory (MTSB) is our .35meter (14 inch) telescope on the
roof of the Earth and Space Sciences Building. Although we are not really a
mountain, our observatory has several advantages over large telescopes. The
main advantage is availablity.
MTSB is currently used for research and teaching during the school year and for
fun during the summers. Our weather prohibits serious summer observing since we
are so close to the waters of Long Island Sound.
There are several on going projects at MTSB.
