The Beck Telescope has a 30-inch reflector. This 1930 vintage Cassegrain has a Warner & Swasey mounting with optical elements by J.W. Fecker. It was completely refurbished and modified for its installation in 1950 by the Perkin-Elmer Corporation. The telescope tracking control system was modernized and upgraded during the summer of 1998, and the mirrors were refinished during the renovations in 2000.
