Hamilton is home to the solar-heated C.H.F. Peters Astronomical Observatory, which houses an 11 1/4" Maksutov telescope and several smaller telescopes. The observatory has been recently upgraded and now features computer control of the telescope mount and CCD readout for collecting images. In addition, state-of-the-art facilities, advanced technology and small classes at the Science Center mean that Hamilton undergraduates have the opportunity to work closely with instruments available only to graduate students at many schools.
