Topic - Sydney Observatory

Sydney Observatory is located on a hill now known as 'Observatory Hill' in an area in the centre of Sydney. The site evolved from a fort built on 'Windmill Hill' in the early 19th century to an astronomical observatory during the nineteenth century. It is now a working museum where evening visitors can observe the stars and planets through a modern 40 cm schmidt-cassegrain telescope and a historic29 cm refractor telescope built in 1874, the oldest telescope in Australia in regular use.[http://www.sydneyobservatory.com.au/about/aboutUs.asp] - Source: Wikipedia
