I have to give a shout out to the folks in Fremont Michigan @ the Stephen F. Wessling Observatory http://www.sfwobservatory.org/ On 21 Jul 2012 these folks greeted us warm welcome to myself and my family, to include Sister-in-law and Nephew for our first Observatory visit Ever. Special thanks to Sherry, Stephen and two of the 4 Terry's for all their info.... Anyone in West Michigan, should go see their observatory, just 5 miles North of Fremont on Stone and Baseline road.

Going through this thread, I noticed two things; a lot of members that haven't been around for a while and that somehow, I missed it and never put my obs, Distant Thunder, in the thread. It was built by me and something I'll never do again; build an obs in the middle of July in SE Looziana. Just too hot. Anyway, this picture is from early December of 2009 when we had a VERY rare snow storm. We ended up with nearly 6" of snow. Yea, I know, you yanks laugh at 6" of snow (I'm from NE Ohio), but here, it's a near disaster.

Here's a picture of my Phoenix observatory followed by a picture of my "guard dog" nestled up close to a nearby burro cactus.
