    Making the Stars Accessible The Requarth Observatory was built in 2000 There are three 300 pound support sections that hold the 20 foot telescope and each support had to be carried up six flights of stairs by hand It was only after the telescope was installed that the freight elevator became operational Faculty and students are continually updating the observatory to meet their scientific needs and there are currently many plans to enhance the stargazing experience for faculty students and visitors In addition to the main telescope the Leighty Tabor Science Building also features an observation deck on the fifth floor that surrounds the base of the dome This observation deck provides the perfect platform to set up the smaller 8 foot telescopes that are commonly used in introductory astronomy classes Even with a small telescope it is still easy to observe the rings of Saturn Images provided by the Herald Review Matt Roberts Danny Damiani Telescopes at Millikin Parallax Instruments 20 Ritchey Chrétien Model No PI500R 20 Clear Aperture 508mm Focal Ratio F 8 1 Focal Length 4114mm Primary Secondary Mirror Substrate Zero Expansion Astrositall Telescope Tube Low Expansion Carbon Fiber Secondary Amplification 2 70X Spacing Approx 40 Mirror Coatings AlSiO Optical Tube Dia 24 Optical Tube Length 56 Optical Tube Weight 130lbs Focuser 2 7 Finder Scope 7X50 Tube Rings Standard Primary Cooling Fan Standard Quantity 3 Slewing Handle Standard Tube C wt Bar Assy Standard Quantity 2 Meade LX 200 8 Schmidt Cassegrain f 6 3 10 Focal Length 1280mm 2000mm Aperture 203mm 203mm Secondary 88mm 76mm Obstruction 43 37 Type SCT SCT Drive Fully computer controlled 64359 object library automatic GO TO capability Altaz Yes Polar Yes with optional wedge Eyepiece 26mm Plossl Finder 8x50 RS232 Yes Power 18v DC AC adapter included Weight 41lbs 41lbs Tripod Standard Cameras at Millikin ST 7XME CCD Kodak KAF 0402ME TI TC 237 Pixel Array 765 x 510 pixels 6 9 x 4 6 mm Total Pixels 390 000 Pixel Size 9 x 9 microns Full Well Capactiy ABG 50 000 e Full Well Capactiy NABG 100 000 e Dark Current 1e pixel sec at 0C Antiblooming KAF 0402ME is NABG only ABG optional KAF 0402LE Shutter Electromechanical Exposure 0 11 to 36000 seconds 10ms resolution Correlated Double Sampling Yes A D Converter 16 bits A D Gain 2 6e ADU Read Noise 15e RMS Binning Modes 1 x 1 2 x 2 3 x 3 Pixel Digitization Rate Up to 420 000 pixels per second Full Frame Acquisition 35 seconds Field of View 12 x 8 arcminutes on f 10 Meade LX 200 Pixel Size 9 x 9 arcseconds on f 10 Meade LX 200 Limiting Magnitude Magnitude 14 in 1 second for 3 arcsec FWHM stars Magnitude 18 in 1 minute Cooling standard Single Stage Thermoelectric Active Fan Water Assist Ready 45 C from Ambient Typical Temperature Regulation 0 1 C Power 5 VDC at 1 5 amps 12 VDC at 0 5 amp desktop power supply
