The David Dunlap Observatory is an astronomical observatory of the University of Toronto in the north of the city in Richmond Hill, Ontario. It is located on an approximately 76 acre site. The main telescope of the observatory is a large 1.88 m reflecting telescope, once the second largest telescope in the world today and is still Canada's largest telescope. In addition to the large telescope mirrors are still other small telescopes on the ground, before there was even a small radio telescope. Since the observatory with 238 u. Sea level is relatively low and now is surrounded by numerous settlements (and thus of many artificial light sources), the efficiency is considerably lower than other, more remote observatories. Nevertheless, the observatory is still used for Spektralastronomie; in the past it had in the study of globular clusters on a pioneering role and contributed to the realization that it is the X-ray binary star Cygnus X-1 is a black hole. The observatory was established on 31 Founded in May 1935 by Clarence Chant. Due to the increasing light pollution in the vicinity of the observatory and the concomitant decrease in the operating performance of the optical telescope in modern times has been unprofitable. In 2007, because of the Observatory of the University of Toronto auction, the company Corsica Development, Inc. was awarded the contract, in 2009 the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada allowed the operation of university hospitals. Today, the observatory tours and scientific observations instead of sporadically.
