Nighthawk Observatory at New Mexico Skies


The observatory became operational on June 6th 2005. I am deeply grateful

to several companies and individuals who helped make it possible. Thanks

to Mike Rice at New Mexico Skies, Brad Ehrhorn at RC Optical Systems,

John Smith (CCDAutoPilot2), and Steve Mandel.



The observatory houses an RC Optical Systems 20" f/8 Ritchey-Chrétien telescope,

Paramount ME, and STL11000 CCD Camera (SBIG).
