Old Equatorial Telescope Dome
Tama

This dome was built in 1926. We can see a huge equatorial refracting telescope made by Carl Zeiss in the dome. The telescope has a 65 cm object lens with a focal length of ca. 10m. The telescope can be used still now, but, unfortunately, the wooden dome cannot be opened since 1998. The wooden dome was built by ship-manufacturers, because, at that time, no architecture could built such dome. There are many similar but smaller domes in the observatory. Heiwa4126 san took a panorama of the inside of one of the dome.
