About this creation
This is the Observatory of the LEGO City. It is destinated to investigate the cosmos in various wavelenghts, Radio, InfraRed, Visible, UltraViolet and Gamma. It's an optical observatory, whose primary mirror is two meters wide (in minifig scale). The Galilego Observatory depends on the LEGO City Gobrickment, and can be visited while the scientifics are working.

Arancha, a physicist, and Ricardo a high energy astronomer:



Pablo, a young quantum physicist:



Quique, an optical engineer and the only one who actually knows how the telescope works:

Some photos of the telescope:





The entrails of the Observatory: A Power Functions XL motor is attached to a Gear Worm Screw (BL 4716) that makes a Gear 40 Tooth (3649) spin slowly. This gear is also connected to a Gear 24 Tooth (3648) that sends the movement to an equal gear through a brown chain (some 3711), that moves the wheel on the top, and through a system of Gear 16 Tooth (4019), sends the movement to the wheel on the other side.







Opening part of the back wall you can acces to the switch and the battery box:





The Communication System:



The stairs to go to the upper floor:

I love it. Can I have your mocpages autograph please? It is where you type your autograph on the computer. It is the closest to a real autograph you can get for MOCpages. I am collecting autographs from mocpages celebrities.

Quoting Steef de Prouw What a wonderful build! I really like the idea of making an observatory, and you did it very well. Does the dome move along with the telescope?
Yes, it does. But the telescope has to be pulled up or down by hand.

Quoting Ryan The Noble [...] Una cosa, "joven" se escribe "young", no "joung", no se si ha sido un despiste a la hora de escirbirlo, pero para que lo tomes en cuenta. [...]
Efectivamente ha sido un despiste de escritura, ahora lo corrijo ;)

Muy bueno y original, todavía no había visto un observatorio en MOCpages. Una cosa, "joven" se escribe "young", no "joung", no se si ha sido un despiste a la hora de escirbirlo, pero para que lo tomes en cuenta. Buen trabajo!

Great work on the dome and telescope, and the lettering on the wall is brilliant. Adding the Power Functions makes it so much more realistic.

An observatory... an intersting, creative, and challeneging subject for a MOC. You portrayed it perfectly, and the dome actually spins? Awesome! I particularly like both the dome and the main telescope.
