Queen’s Observatory, Kingston Ontario

The first Observatory in Kingston was established in the mid-19th century, the beginning of a long and distinguished history of astronomical observing in this city. The current Observatory, now based at Queen’s University, houses a state-of-the-art 16-inch reflecting telescope in a dome on the roof of Ellis Hall, and is used for student training, public demonstrations, and school visits.
