The Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington (OCIW) was founded by George Ellery Hale in 1904. It is located in Pasadena, California. I had an opportunity for a tour on Friday, 23 January 2004, hosted by Alan Dressler, one of the staff research astronomers. I have posted a gallery of photographs taken on the tour with some brief comments. The Observatories complex is not really an "observatory" but is a design and research facility for several observatories of the Carnegie Observatories. Visit their web site for more information.
