My new home......

Hi Guys....so here is a pic of the obsy.

Check out this link for a video of the roof opening and closing.....a work of beauty! (I can't take credit for it though) - https://youtu.be/IfTshNIecfI

In short -
- 9m x 6m shed
- Fully electric opening
- Concrete floor
- 6m x 3m insulated "control room"
- Located central Vic outside of light pollution 'dome' from Melb/Bendigo/other townships.
- Shortly I'll have the scope setup on a custom built pier

....looking forward to getting some images!

I'm feeling pretty spoilt Col I must admit.....old Macedon Ranges Observatory site which I purchased late last year.
Has taken me 12 months but I've finally got around to getting this thing up and running. Also on site are 12 concrete (powered) observing sites.

One member on here mentioned the other day he didn't like it up here back when it was running as a public observatory....why you ask.....too hard to polar align because there were too many stars visible.

....it's a good issue to have!
