Home Sweet Observatory Row

The SDAA maintains a 10 Acre compound east of San Diego for outreach and research purposes. This picture was taken by a club member as he flew over the compound. The buildings in the top left of the image are observatories. To the right are three roads which provide access to private pads (overnight sites) where members setup telescopes. At bottom left you will see two long concrete rows which are known as the public pads.

The site is open to the public once a month, and I highly recommend visiting if you can and take a look at the sky with this 22″ club scope.

Amazing views, lovely quiet back country, and welcoming astronomers to help you see the stars, the moon, and 9 planets.
