Observatory Monte Generoso

In 1996 a public Observatory was inaugurated on the Monte Generoso. The structure is open to everyone that's interested in astronomy. The centre disposes of many modern instruments and materials, such as the reflecting telescope Richey-Chretien, which has a diameter of 61 cm and a focal length of 5 metres. The movements of this tool and of the dome above are coordinated by a microprocessor.
