Siding Spring Observatory (SSO) sits next to the picturesque Warrumbungle National Park, close to the town of Coonabarabran. Telescopes operated by ANU include the 2.3m telescope (square building, centre of frame), and the SkyMapper telescope (far-right of frame). In addition, ANU will soon take operational control of the Anglo-Australian telescope (large dome in the distance). Photo credit: Peter Verwayen (ANU).
