I was at Sky's the Limit Observatory tonight doing a little EAA and DSO imaging... We were running two Celestron 14" scopes... one inside the observatory dome and one outside. Both scopes were running a Mallincam DS10C-TEC camera and using the Mallincan Sky software. We got great views of Orion Nebula, Bode's galaxy and other DSOs. Sky's the Limit is a great little observatory that sits right on the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park.

 

I shot a nice little time lapse here: https://www.youtube....h?v=TSgBLHl1DS4

 

If you ever get to Joshua Tree, this venue is available to the public. You can set up a scope or take night sky photos anytime. Clear skies all.

Thanks for the video. I will have to check them out if I am ever out there.
