Welcome to Waning Moon II

Waning Moon was the name of my observatory in New Orleans East, seen in the photograph below. It contained a homemade 12 1/2' fiberglass dome on top of an 11' square building. Initially it housed a 6" f/15 Jaegers refractor on a Cave Astrola mount. This setup was later replaced with an 8" f/15 Coulter Cassegrain riding on a Byers 812 mount.
My new observatory in Pearl River, Louisiana is nearing completion and will be named Waning Moon II in rememberance of my first observatory. It was going to be a roll-off roof structure containing the 8" Cassegrain and Byers 812 mount on a permanent pier, but I ended up going with an ExploraDome II 11' 6" dome. There is an adjacent observing area next to the observatory upon which I will use my 17.5" AstroSystems Telekit. The TeleKit is equipped with a ServCAT to allow for automatic locating and tracking of celestial objects.
