Views inside Yerkes Observatory

A view of the rotunda right inside the main doors, and the skylight in this rotunda.

This is a bust of Charles Yerkes that is in the main rotunda of the Observatory. (Yes he's wearing someone else's hat.) A smaller version of this bust is in the Yerkes library. (That bust came along on an observing run to Wyoming with some graduate students some years ago, but that is another story.)

Inside Yerkes, there are telescopes (of course) and exhibits.


Go on to telescopes or exhibits.
