Large Binocular Telescope Observatory (LBTO)

On the 3221m high Mount Graham in Arizona stands an observatory like no other, because it consists of two huge optical telescopes on a single mount under an enormous protective structure: the Large Binocular Telescope Observatory (LBTO).

Next to it, a downright tiny Baader 2.3m AllSky dome has now been installed. It houses a solar polarimeter, which would be connected to an instrument of the LBT.

Thank you again for your great product, your beautiful dome!
It has got a place of honor on the balcony of the giant dome building, the most powerful telescope on earth so far, on Mount Graham in Arizona, and will always protect our special instrument, our solar polarimeter, and help us to get very interesting observation results for many years.

Surely one day, for a new project, a cooperation with you will arise again.
