The Observatory

The Sungazer Observatory was inspired from the Rising Sun Armchair that was used by George Washington during the 1787 Constitutional Convention at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. See the construction photos here.

The observatory's primary nighttime instrument is a 14" telescope.
