Aerial Tour of the Mauna Kea Observatories

Copyright 1998, Richard Wainscoat, All Rights Reserved

New aerial photographs of the Mauna Kea Observatories were obtained in February 1998.

The first 10 photographs in these series show many (and in a few cases all) of the observatories at the top of Mauna Kea. The next series of photographs provide a closer look at some of the telescopes.

The photographs can be accessed from the index below, or can be viewed as a series using the arrows at the bottom of each page.

After looking at some of these photographs, you may wish to look at some of the aerial photographs of Mauna Kea Observatories in 1995 to see the changes that occurred between 1995 and 1998.
