UAM Astronomical Observatory - Presentation

The astronomical observatory of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid is on the seventh floor of the módulo 15, Facultad de Ciencias. Apart from a computer room, used by members of the Astrophysics group and last-year undergraduate students for numerical simulation and observational data reduction, it hosts the Telescopio Jerónimo Muñoz (TJM), a 20-inch (51 cm) refractor with German equatorial mount. The telescope, as well as the 5-meter dome, were built on 1989 by IMVO with finantial support from the Fundación Banco Exterior. The main technical specifications of the instrument are briefly summarized in this document (in Spanish).
