Mt. Lemmon Domes

Here are the smaller domes on Mt. Lemmon, along with the largest one, shortly before sunset. The large geodesic dome in the background used to hold a military radar station when this was the control point for the Titan II missle silos around the Tucson valley. There are plans on removing this dome and installing a larger telescope in it's place. Canon 20D - 1/400th, 70mm @ f/10, ISO 400

Hey - the one on the right is an Ash dome! Better start opening it now to have it open by the time it gets dark! - Jim.

That's the new 20" Infra-red telescope. Very nice indeed. No comment on the dome... :)
