Nellie Cam

Chabot's Webcam on the Night Sky


Refresh page to update image

NellieCam is Chabot's webcam on the night sky, seeing the Universe through the eyes of our observatory's unique set of telescopes. When NellieCam is online, you will see a view of the current sky target of our 36-inch reflecting telescope, Nellie, through one of its two side-mounted 5-inch refracting sighting scopes.

Normal hours for public telescope viewing through Chabot's telescopes are 7:30pm - 10:30pm, Friday and Saturday nights. Check back here to see if NellieCam is online during those hours--keeping in mind that, whatever you may see, the view is astronomically more fantastic looking through the eyepiece of one of our telescopes in person....
