Here is a final view of the front of the Nova Quest Observatory. Due to recent rains you can see the sand and mud kicked up on the sides and front of the observatory. We added some pavers to the front to make a porch and to stop the sand from being kicked up on the front door and sill due to rain hitting the ground.
Here is an image of the inside. We put a bunk bed inside to allow for extended stays and a place to sleep the next morning after an all night session. Just to left and out of the picture is the refrigerator and microwave oven. To the right is the table for the computers and monitors.
View looking through the front door. Yes that is a TV for our viewing pleasure. Have to do someting between image captures.
We took the 12.5" Ritchey-Chretien scope and placed it on the GT-1100 mount. Here it is shown in it parked and shutdown position.
This image shows both scopes setup and ready to go. The scope on the right is the Meade LX-200 10" that my wife will be using to do film imaging. I will be using the 12.5" Ritchey-Chretien for remote searching of Supernovas and for doing the "Pretty" pictures when out at the site.
