The Kennon Observatory was constructed in 1939 and consists of two copper-roofed domes.
In the larger dome, is a refractor telescope that was purchased from the Sr. Howard Grubb Co. in 1893. It actually consists of 3 co-aligned visual and photographic telescopes; a fifteen-inch f/12 visual telescope, a nine-inch photographic telescope and a four-inch visual telescope.

The smaller dome currently houses a twelve-inch f/10 Meade LX200, Schmidt-Cassegrian reflector telescope with an electronic CCD camera, the SBIG, ST10 with an AO-7 adaptive optics accessory, attached to it. The original Meade telescope mount has been upgraded to a Paramount ME.
