Red Buttes Observatory (RBO) is an astronomical observatory owned and operated by University of Wyoming. It is located 15 kilometers (9 mi) south of Laramie, Wyoming (USA) and was founded in 1994. The observatory houses a 0.6 m (24 in) telescope built by DFM Engineering. There are two instruments available: a 1024x1024 imaging camera, and a near-infrared camera. A second, smaller telescope built by Orion is mounted on the main telescope. Recent research includes monitoring Cepheid variable stars and follow-up observation of gamma-ray bursts.
