Florida Tech's Ortega telescope was made possible through the generous donations of James and Sara Ortega and a Research Instrumental granted issued by the National Science Foundation.  The telescope was dedicated on April 12, 2008 and now serves as the primary training and research instrument for astronomy faculty and students.

These images were captured by Florida Tech students using the Ortega telescope (You must be signed-in to view these pictures)
