McDonald Observatory is home to several research telescopes and has an extensive education and outreach program. In April of 2012, LCO installed a 1-meter telescope. With a generous grant from the Heising-Simons Foundation, the second 1-meter telescope was added in October of 2019. We also have one 0.4-meter telescope at this site.

For more information about the site and current telescopes, check out the McDonald Observatory website.
