The Cincinnati Observatory is located in the eastern suburbs of Hyde Park/Mt. Lookout near Ault Park. It is one of the oldest professional observatories in the country (more than 160 years old). It houses the oldest telescope still in public use, a huge wood and brass instrument. It also houses a larger 16 inch refractor in a separate building. The observatory regularly conducts classes and observation sessions that are interesting and informative. These sessions are free.
The main drawback is the observatory's location which is very close to downtown. The lights make it harder to get access to clear skies. To make up for this, the observatory organizes star parties at Stonelick State Park where astronomers set up their equipment, allowing the public to view the many wonders of the night sky.
