Welcome to a journey into our Universe with Dr Dave, amateur astronomer and astrophotographer for over 40 years. Astro-imaging, image processing, space science, solar astronomy and public outreach are some of the stops in this journey!
We visited the Mayhill site where much has happened since we last checked! Trees have been cleared and the slab for the double wide house has been poured. We also graded the hill for observatory access from the house to the observatory. A schematic layout is pictured here looking up from the house level toward the observatory to the north.
View from house level to the north. This is the same view as shown in the schematic above. You can see the access road in the foreground
Slab for the double wide dwelling. This is about half way to the top of the property
This is the view currently from the observatory location toward the south. Compare to before trees were cleared below!
