Rob's visit to Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona - 80F weather in February .. Perfect!


Typical Observing - working at -20C or less
Extreme Astronomy!

   
The original pictures featured on this site were taken with  a DSLR camera and a variety of equipment as I try to develop my skills.

GUIDING
Most of the older photos were actually manually guided but
I have recently added autoguiding using PHD and a QHY monochrome camera. Thanks to a finderscope donation from Don Gulka at the 2010 SSSP. I built a 50mm finder-based autoguider that seems to be working very well.
