Galaxy Blues Observatory

Equipment

!!!!! UNDER CONSTRUCTION !!!!!

Being an amateur astronomer doesn't mean that you can't do much to contribute to the field; in fact, it's one of the only hobbies where people of all levels have equal access to the object of study, the night sky. Throughout history many discoveries in astronomy were made by people who did for the pure pleasure of doing it.

We are also living in very interesting times when it comes to access to quality equipment. With the combination of computers and the mass production of optics of a quality only dreamed of a mere 20 years ago anybody can have a good telescope with a goto for less than $1000, and a telescope without computer for $300. And I haven't even broached binoculars!

 

Here is a list of the equipment I have installed and/or use at Galaxy Blues Observatory:
