The Main Dome houses a 16-inch reflector telescope on the upper floor. On the ground floor
is a Computer Room which contains much of the site's portable equipment, loaner scopes,
computer systems, the battery bank, and a power inverter. The dome also supplies Wi-Fi
coverage for the site.
The Imaging Dome houses the astrophotography equipment including a Celestron 14-inch
Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope (SCT) with a HyperStar that is tied to a fully equipped
control and processing system.
Robert O. Ortega Building
The Robert Ortega Building (also known as The ROOst) is used as a meeting room,
bunkhouse, and remote operations area. The building is heated for those who plan
to sleep the night in cold weather. Photovoltaic panels are mounted on
the roof which supply power for the site.
La Cocina Galactica
The Cocína is a heated fully equipped cafe with a stove, oven, and table. It is
the place where observers retreat when they are cold in the winter or want a cup
of coffee or some food. Many important discussions occur here while observers wait
for the skies to clear on cloudy days.
The Observing Field provides a large flat area for observing including 22
concrete pads and two fixed piers.
The Picnic Area provides several grills and table for cookouts.
The Lecture Area provides benches in an amphitheater setup for lectures and
other presentations. In this area is a memorial for George Pellegrino who was
a leader in building GNTO.
The outhouse is located at the northeast corner of the site.
The Parking Lot is on the north side of the site. It provides an area to park for
those who are not transporting equipment to the Observing Field.
