Detroit Observatory
1398 E Ann St, Ann Arbor, 48109, MI, United States

Built in Ann Arbor 1854, paid for by several Detroit Buisnessmen. This was the first major research facility at the University of Michigan. At the time of it's installation, the Fitz refactor was the third largest telescope in the world. For many years, the Meridian Circle telescope was used to set the railroad time for SE Michigan. Today, both the Fitz and the Meridian Circle telescope are in working order. On viewing Nights, the Fitz is available to the public to take a look through.
