Presented during the 23rd Annual Summer Fellows Symposium, July 23, 2021 at Ursinus College.

Project Description

Having four telescopes, each in its own bay with retractable roof, the Marsteller Observatory is an undergrad Astronomy buff’s fantasy; it just needed a little love, first. My goal this summer was to assess the state of the observatory after a few years of dormancy, make any necessary fixes and do all I could to facilitate future students’ exploration of the cosmos.
