Deep Sky Objects
After 40 years of observing the night sky and writing books on comets and meteor showers, I finally committed to putting an observatory in my backyard so that I can more seriously approach the imaging of comets. I decided to go with Backyard Observatories, who arrived at my home on the evening of 2006 September 14 and finished my observatory on September 17. Some rainy weather occurred during the next two nights, but I finally aligned the telescope on September 20. This web site will highlight some of the work being done at the observatory. I hoping to begin precisely measuring the positions of comets and minor planets sometime during the next few months.
