Raptor Ridge is my own private (non-commercial) observatory. It is named for the many hawks that can be seen daily soaring on the upslope wind that we have during the day. Fortunately this wind is not normally present on clear nights so does not interfere with astronomy.

See my new images page for the latest images!

The equipment consists of an AP 155 refractor on an AP 900GTO mount. That is accompanied by an RCOS 14.5 inch Ritchie.This sits on my AP 1200GTO mount.

Scopes are now in place!
