Imaging is done from the P.H. Summers Observatory, my private facility in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The main instrument is shown above, a 14″ Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. The structure’s roof slides open (rather than peering through a slot, like you might seen in a traditional observatory) to eliminate “slot currents” that can degrade high-resolution imaging.
The primary purpose of the observatory is high-resolution imaging of the planets and moons in our solar system.
The current imaging system includes a Point Grey Research Flea3 monochrome CCD camera with Astrodon and Astronomik Diochroic filters.
