Title: Damage to 74-inch reflector at Mount Stromlo Observatory following 2003 Canberra bushfires
Description: 
Between 18-22 January 2003, parts of south-west Canberra were severely impacted by bushfires. The fires destroyed most of the Australian National University's Mount Stromlo Observatory, including the original observatory building, workshops, several telescopes and staff homes. Completed in 1955, the 74-inch reflector was the observatory's largest and most advanced telescope and its primary research instrument until it was destroyed.
