A remote controllable 20-inch CDK research grade system will be partnered with a 6-inch Takahashi refractor and a Lunt solar telescope for better viewing capabilities and even live observation of the sun. The CDK20 sits atop a Planewave A200 German Equatorial mount making the telescope fully remote and controllable from a PC.

In addition, high quality CCD image cameras will enable real-time recording and conversion of images into digital photos for use on the planetarium dome. These telescope also will be controllable from the planetarium.
