Tinsley Telescope

 Gov Aker Telescope at Discovery Park

The Mount Graham International Observatory partners with the Discovery Park Campus of Eastern Arizona College to maintain and provide training on the 20" Gov Aker Telescope.  This telescope was donated by Steward Observatory and was manufactured by the Tinsley Corporation.  The primary purpose of the telescope is for public education and outreach.


As part of the training for operators, the Operators Manual for the telescope is available.
