Zit Observatory
Having set up the E-Scope earlier this year, we have reroofed and re-sided the observatory. But we also raised the interior for more clearance and replaced the door with a taller one.

We now have a brand new F-Scope, a Stellarvue SVQ100 F5.8 Astrograph to replace the C14. And a new imaging camera, a ZWO ASI1600MM Cool. The mount is an AP GTO900. It sits in the Toeller Observatory. Testing is complete and it is now in operation.

Current Universal Time

A New Parking Lot Sign! We purchased a new MAS sign for the parking lot to replace the old one that was falling apart. It sure looks great!
