The 24 inch telescope on the top of the building has been repaired and the custodians and physical plant personnel have rehabilitated the interior of the dome. Public viewings will resume on March 25, 2016.
The 24 inch telescope on top of the Physics Building is the 3rd largest in the state of Georgia. It has been used for student instruction and public viewings since the late 1950s. However, it had been out of commission for over a year due to problems with the focussing mechanism. The source of the problem was found in January of 2016, as described in an article in the Red and Black, making the telescope useable again.
