Exterior view of the solar McMath-Pierce telescope.
About this image
View of the McMath-Pierce telescope on Kitt Peak, the largest solar telescope in the world. This telescope is large enough that it is also used for bright star work during the night: most solar telescopes are only sensitive enough to observe the bright Sun.
