Abbey Ridge Observatory
The Abbey Ridge Observatory is a robotic astronomical observatory located in Stillwater Lake, NS, Canada. It is owned by Dave Lane.
It is one of only two observatories in the world, along with the Burke-Gaffney Observatory, that can be controlled from Twitter in a fully-automatic way!
At this site, you will find information about the observatory, its work and how to use it.
May 1, 2016: ARO is now officially online as the world's second Twitter-controlled observatory! I welcome RASC members (and others that I know) to give it a try! It operates identically to the BGO. There are some differences in the available filters and image field of view.
April 30, 2016: A new website is done!
January, 2016: ARO is now the world's second Twitter-operated observatory after the BGO. Documentation on how to use the observatory yourself will be put on-line soon!
