Observing location
Just outside Albox, Almeria , Spain

My new 'observatory' in Spain is almost complete. Following a request from me via the BAA Forum for a source of run off roof observatories in Spain I will soon have an 'Astronomy Booth". The observatory is a mere 2m X 2m and will house either my C14 or an 8-inch Ritchey Chretien scope, The advantage is that the roof is motorised and I plan to open and close the booth from inside the house. The telescope and mount will be remotely operated from inside the house initially. Similar observatories are used for remote operation of telescopes at Nerpio in Spain which is just north of here. I may eventually be able to operate my equipment from the UK.
