The largest telescope at UCLA is a 24 inch Cassegrain telescope equipped with an SBIG ST-7CCD camera. This telescope is primarily used for upper division astronomy labs, but it has also been used for public viewing of Mars during the 2003 opposition. This telescope was built in 1964 and originally located on a UCLA-operated site in Ojai, California. It was moved its current dome at UCLA in 1981, but was not in use until after refurbishments that began in 1987 and culminated in 1993.
Other telescopes at UCLA include a 16-inch reflector (currently inoperable due to an unstable mount), a ?-inch Dobsonian, a 10-inch reflector, and an antique 4-inch refractor.
