Linden Observatory sits atop a rocky plateau in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia. Established in the 1940's by renowned amateur telescope maker Ken Beames, the observatory is a dark sky haven for amateur astronomers seeking refuge from the city lights. The site comprises the historic 61cm reflector built by Mr Beames; various workshops used by Mr Beames, one of which is used as a meeting room and storage for telescopes; observing fields; a sliding roof observatory housing a 76cm refelector mounted on an equatorial platform; residence and caretakers cottage.
