Windsor Observatory, Windsor, New South Wales, Australia. This observatory was built in 1864 by Australian astronomer John Tebbutt (1834-1916). He used the site to make both astronomical and meteorological observations over many decades during his career. In 1887, he published 'History and Description of Mr Tebbutt's Observatory' and published a yearly report thereafter. Tebbutt had discovered the Great Comet of 1861, and from this site he discovered another great comet in 1881. The observatory is part of Australia's Register of the National Estate. This view shows the old and new observatories as seen from the north-west.
