Leitner Family Observatory

The Yale Student Observatory, formally known as the Leitner Family Observatory , is an astronomical observatory owned and operated by Yale University. It is located in Farnham Memorial Gardens near the corner of Edwards and Prospect Streets, New Haven, Connecticut (USA).

The observatory is intended for student use. It includes two Ash domes housing a 12" LX200 Meade telescope and a refurbished Grubb refractor (originally purchased to observe the 1882 transit of Venus). Detectors include an SBIG ST-9E CCD camera and a DSS-7 spectrograph. There is also an observing deck between the domes.
