Hi all,

Its been a few years since last posting here (usually in lunar/planetary imaging area) but my Wife and I have moved from icy Canada to the very dark mountains of northeen Baja Mexico. We are close to opening our astro B&B, my new observatory is about 2 weeks from being finished! I got the plans from the Backyard observatories folks, it is a 20X24' roll off roof observatory. Our house is off grid solar so I will be running the power from our house to the observatory for the roof motor and a couple lights, plugs etc. Decided against vinyl siding as our high UV (11+) would damage them imo. I'll post another pic when its done.
