Project: Observatory – Site Overview

Return to main page

Aerial view

We are fortunate to have sufficient land to accommodate a large open area for the observatory, giving us a 30° horizon in most directions. The yellow rectangle is where the observatory is located in the clearing, and in relation to our round house (left), about 300' away. North is up in this photo, and the observatory is oriented north-south.

Horizon panaroma

Here is a 360° panoramic view from the observatory position at telescope height, and shows the horizon the telescope will see.

Horizon comparison

Here is the new horizon compared to our former site. The expanded viewing area is dramatic.
