1 Sawin Observatory
The Sawin Observatory is the main observatory of the Delaware Astronomical Society. It has two telescopes and is very handy for a quick visit. SPECIAL NOTE: Laser pointers are strictly prohibited at this location due to its proximity to significant air traffic. Your cooperation is appreciated.
The DAS maintains The Sawin Observatory on the grounds of the Mt. Cuba Astronomical Observatory.
The Sawin Observatory houses the club’s equatorially mounted 12.5" reflecting telescope. The Sawin is also currently home base for our 17.5" split-tube Dobsonian telescope.
