12-Inch Cassegrain Telescope Donated by Dr. James Gant, 1988.

The telescope was manufactured by J. W. Fecker of Pittsburgh, probably in the 1950s. Along with some other astronomy equipment that were part of the 1988 Gant donation, it was sold to Peter Bealo of the Sweet Hill Observatory in New Hampshire in 2009. The proceeds of the sale were used to supplement the equipment purchases within the Department of Physics and Earth Science.
