Braintree, Massachusetts.

Cahall Observatory, located on Thayer Academy campus near the track/football fields, serves as a state-of-the-art resource for students to look through a telescope and see with their own eyes things that were previously only visible in a textbook. Featuring a fully automated 6-inch Telescope Equipment Corporation apochromatic refractor, and a 70-mm Coronado Solarmax hydrogen-alpha filtered solar telescope, students are able to control the telescopes and camera from any computer on the internet.
