Highwinds Observatory Clear Sky Clock:
Welcome to:   Highwinds Observatory   Geneseo, New York

Here are some images I have taken over the years of the incredible beauty of our universe !    These are a combination of a Minolta SRT101 35 mm film camera, a Nikon Coolpix 4500 digital camera, and in August of 2006 I purchased Meade DSI Pro II camera (with filter set).   I'm just getting the hang of the Meade camera, and finding out the learning curve of CCD LRGB imaging is fairly steep.

- I used the plans from  Backyard Observatories   and it certainly made construction much easier.
