It features a Cassegrain reflecting telescope having a mirror whose diameter is fourteen inches. It is mounted in an observing room whose dome has a diameter of sixteen feet.
This system has been used since October, 1979. A variety of portable telescopes and accessories are stored at the Observatory.

Using this window to the rest of the universe, West Georgia's students and people from the surrounding area have observed the Sun, Moon, planets, nebulas, star clusters, and galaxies. The facilities are available for observation of solar and lunar eclipses. During 1985-1986, about 3000 people saw the Halley's comet using telescopes at the Observatory.

In addition to its usage to support observations for astronomy classes and student projects, a program of public observations are held four to six times per quarter. Special observations by science classes, science clubs, and civic or religious groups may be arranged by contacting the Director of the Observatory, Dr. Bob Powell.

Public observations are held if the sky is clear. Groups or organizations may request special observations conducted by Bob Powell by calling him. See observatory event listings here.
