The AAT dome from the north-west

Date created: 1975-12-04

Tags: N/A

The Anglo_Australian Telescope dome, is seen here from highest point Siding Spring Mountain, also known as Mount Woorat. Though the AAT building  is situated somewhat lower than the summit of Mount Woorat, the telescope itself is at about the same altitude, 1,165 metres (3,822 feet) above sea level. Bingar Cottage and the (previous) Siding Spring astronomer's lodge are to the left and right of the tree respectively. The landscape is typical of the central west of New South Wales — apart from the telescopes of course! December 1975.
