An Observatory in Colorado

NGC7023, The Iris Nebula in Cepheus

Welcome to Cloudbait Observatory, located under the dark skies of the central Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Here you will find details about the observatory itself, its history (and my own as an amateur astronomer), the science I conduct here, and a collection of images I've made. Details of the instrumentation I use and some of the tricks I've developed to make it work well are given.

I am very interested in instrumentation, and much of what I design is freely available to anyone interested. Details about some of these projects are posted on this site.
