Quote:Hi all.On the Best Observatory Links thread by CSA montana, yhere is a list of Observatories. Naturally, there are more backyard observatories than just these, and I thought that there should be a supplement list on Cloudynights.If you have an observatory not on the above list, please post its name, type (Roll off, Dome, or other) and WebpGe (if it has one). This list may prove quite useful to prospective observatory builders.
