The AAT dome, Siding Spring Lodge, and Bingar Cottage
Date created: 1975-12-04
The Anglo-Australian Telescope dome, with the former Siding Spring Lodge in the foreground and Bingar Cottage on the left. The road leads to the ANU telescopes, behind the camera, and nowadays many more telescopes occupy the foreground and elsewhere on the mountain. The puffy white summer clouds seen here typically vanish around twilight revealing clear and extremely dark skies. December 1975.
