In operation since August 1996, the PSU/GAO features a classical Cassegrain telescope with a 61 cm (24 inch) primary mirror and has a focal ratio of f/15. The telescope was purchased from New Mexico State University's Astronomy Dept. in 1993. Along with the telescope, we obtained a Boller & Chivens spectrograph, spectrophotometer, and photoelectric photometer.
