Since first light in May of 2007, SRO has continuously operated multiple observatories for both professional research and amateur imaging.
All observatories are roll-off roof design and constructed with elevated wood sub floors, designed to minimizing thermal contamination.
Shared Observatories have 9-foot ceilings, while Climate-Controlled Observatories have 10-foot ceilings.
Building and site infrastructure incorporates high-availability and and fail-safe features to maximize equipment safety and minimize downtime.
