We now have a place to stay up at the Mayhill observatory site! I guess technically it’s in a separate development from Star End so we can’t really use that name. I will have to come up with a name. At any rate the house is finally up and almost ready to stay in. A few utilities still need to be hooked up. If anyone has not seen these prefab houses recently you need to check them out! It’s a totally different deal now. You really can’t tell it’s not a “real” house. They have come a long way. Wood burning fireplace, large kitchen with upscale appliances. Even a large walk in closet. (my wife is very happy).
The actual observatory will start construction this year. After that equipment acquisition and installation. I am hoping for first light by early 2018!
