Steward Observatory[edit]

The page lists the Steward Observatory as a telescope on Kitt Peak. This is not correct. The Steward Observatory is a organizational unit at the University of Arizona which operates telescopes in various locations, including the 12-m telescope on Kitt Peak. Unfortunately, the Steward Obs page is a stub, and there doesn't seem to be a 12-m telescope page. --zandperl 01:46, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

I added a section about the leasing of the site from the Tohono O'odham. I took it from the page about them. It is relevant since their is an ongoing controversy about the use of sacred lands for the observatory. malatesta 21:10, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
