Contest #278 answer: Siding Springs Observatory, NSW, Australia

With a total of 12 telescopes, the Siding Spring Observatory is the main optical telescope site in Australia and was originally set up in 1924.

Last week a raging bushfire destroyed some of the support buildings on site, but the telescopes were not damaged, as it seems.
