The telescope at Mount Stromlo after the 2003 bushfire

This is the image of one of the biggest telescopes that was destroyed during the 2003 Canberra bushfires. This telescope was in a steel roof observatory and was cooked which is very different to what happened to the aluminium roof observatories which just melted.
