Welcome to The Cottage Observatory!

Minor Planet Center (MPC) Observatory I46

Skunk Hollow Observatory has been renamed!  The new name reflects a better time in
my life and a change in location for my observatory... :)  I wouldn't change anything!
I now live in Altoona, Pennsylvania USA.  My NEW TPO 10" f/8 Ritchey–Chrétien
and Celestron CGE Pro have arrived!!!  I currently use several different scopes
for imaging.  They are a TPO 10" f/8 Ritchey–Chrétien, TPO 8" f/4 Carbon Fiber
Imaging Newtonian, William Optics ZS71 APO and a Stellarvue SV66ED.
I use a SBIG ST-8300M imager and a Celestron CGE Pro mount.
Older images were shot using a QHY9M & SBIG ST-2000XM.
I am having more fun and better results that I ever did with my Meade LX200.
Switching to my current setup was the best move I ever did.

Most of my new images are on AstroBin !!!!!
Older images are on PBase.
