The Griffith Observatory, in Los Angeles, California, received a donation of two Celestron telescopes from the company – each a custom built Schmidt-Cassegrain tube. The 8” and 9.25” Celestron telescopes will ride piggyback on the Griffith Observatory's existing 12” Zeiss telescope for the general public to see several specific objects in space from the ground floor of the Observatory. The Griffith Observatory has undergone major construction renovations to bring it up to its original grandeur as well as expand the facility to double the Observatory size and is set to re-open late in 2006.
