English: The observatorio Mohon del Trigo is an observatory, which was built in in 1902 and contained a 32 cm Cassegrain type KYOTO reflector telescope donated by Georgetown University. It is located in the vicinity of Pico del Veleta (3394m) in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Spain at a height of about 2600m. The observatory was abandoned in the 1970s and deterioated into a ruin as documented by me in 2010. Since then, the observatory has been restored and is today in good shape (as seen from the outside, at least, I have not been inside). Nearby is also barracks used by the Special Operations Command of Spain. Here, the observatory is seen in evening sun as viewed from nearby Monument of Our Lady of the Snows. From this view point, the modern Sierra Nevada Observatory established 1981 can also be seen, but in the opposite direction.(Thanks to Slaunger for his excellent caption of his Featured Picture of the same building, I've almost copied and pasted...
Français : L'observatoire Mohon del Trigo est un observatoire qui fut construit en 1902, et recevait un télescope à réflecteur 32cm Cassegrain type KYOTO, offert par l'Université de Georgetown. Il est situé au pied du Pic Veleta (3394m) dans la Sierra Nevada en Andalousie, à peu près à 2600m d'altitude. L'observatoire a été abandonné en 1970, et peu à peu ruiné, (voir cette image de 2010). Depuis, il a été restauré et semble en bon état de l'extérieur (je ne suis pas entré dedans). à côté se trouve cette caserne, utilisée par les Forces Spéciales espagnoles. Ici, le bâtiment sur son promontoire est vu depuis le site du Monument de Notre-Dame des Neiges. Du même point, mais dans la direction opposée, on peut voir l'observatoire moderne édifié en 1981. (Merci à Slaunger pour sa légende d'une image similaire, dont je me suis largement inspiré.)
