Photography Night

Photography Night

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

At the summit of Mt. Hamilton, above the city of San Jose, we have spectacular views of the night sky.

We will open up the main building after normal visiting hours for photographers and their equipment. We will have the 36-inch Great Refractor telescope in a photogenic position, with the dome open, weather permitting. (Note: viewings or taking pictures through the telescope will not be offered at this event.) Photographers will also be able to set up their camera equipment in the parking lot in order to capture the exterior of the main building, the San Jose city lights, and stars in the night sky.
