Construction of the 31" Telescope and Observatory


A lot has been said about the history of the Warren Rupp Observatory and the legacy of the telescope's mirror maker Norm Oberle.  Many articles on this web site and others will provide you with the details and the stories that made it all happen.  This article will not focus on the the facts outlined in previous articles but will instead document the construction of the Warren Rupp Observatory through pictures taken from start to finish.  To my knowledge, such images have not been documented anywhere else and are presented here not only for your enjoyment, but to preserve and record these images for historical reference.  Should additional photographs pertaining to this subject matter surface in the future, please contact the web administrator of this site.  I hope to see you soon at the Warren Rupp Observatory.
