Telescopes & Computing Facilities

This section covers the telescopes and computing facilities we have access to through the Institute. Below is an overview of the telescopes we are most actively involved in.

Thanks to a generous donation from Stanley Hubbard of Hubbard Broadcasting Corporation and continued support for the Dean of the College of Science and Engineering, the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics is a member of the LBT consortium. As part of our arrangement with the LBT Observatory and the University of Arizona/Steward Observatory, we also have access to the Steward telescopes including the MMT Observatory, Bok 90-inch on Kitt Peak, and the Magellan Telescopes.
