Book on the Old Observatory

Tartu tähetorn – Tartu Old Observatory

The book came out to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Old Observatory. It offers an overview of the distinguished history of the institution, the people who shaped it, and the faithful equipment they used. It is a collective effort of numerous authors which was compiled into one book by Lea Leppik.

The Old Observatory book is available in all the branches of the UT Museum and larger book stores.

There is also an e-book, which introduces the history of the Old Observatory.
