Welcome to my website describing my roll-off roof astronomical observatory in NE Scotland (UK) together with my observing and imaging activities over the past 15 years. The observatory originally housed an 8" LX200 SCT telescope / ST7 CCD Camera, but was upgraded to a 12" LX200R SCT telescope / ST10-XME CCD Camera in 2009.
