Sep 7, 2016: We contacted Stockton through their FB page to see if there are any public events at this location. Sadly, they said, "At this time the observatory is not open to the public." If this ever changes, please let us know!
The Stockton College Observatory, a facility of the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Division, was started in 1974 as an academic project directed by the late Astrophysics Professor Harold Taylor. The Observatory is a 16 foot diameter Ash dome housing a 0.4 m (16-inch) Meade LX 200 Schmidt-Cassegrain computer controlled telescope, as its main instrument and a 125 mm (5-inch) auxiliary telescope.
