40in. Telescope at Siding Spring Observatory, Oct. 199940 in. Telescope at Siding Spring Observatory
Oct. 1999

As the caption suggests, this is the 40" telescope at Siding Spring Observatory in New South Wales, Australia. According to SSO's Wikipedia page, this telescope is scheduled to be de-comissioned on Jan 1, 2008, but I couldn't find anything about that on any official pages.

I know this building has a library inside it, and I believe there's a kitchen. There probably used to be living quarters, but now these are elsewhere.

Really: a telescope, a library, a kitchen, and a terrific view. Throw in an internet feed and a satellite connection, and you have pretty much all life affords, right there. Besides, you know, food and stuff.
