Montgomery Bell Academy’s Long Mountain Observatory near McMinnville, TN was
completed in 2011. The observatory is equipped with a PlaneWave CDK 24 telescope
and integrated rotating focuser on a PlaneWave Ascension 200HR mount. The
telescope supports a SBIG STL 11000M camera with Astrodon
L-R-G-B-Ha-V-Rc-Ic filters to permit RGB and narrow band imaging as well as
photometry and exoplanet light curve research.
