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 three observatories in the world, along with the Burke-Gaffney Observatory and the Mini Robotic Observatory, that can be controlled from Twitter and Facebook in a fully-automatic way!
At this site, you will find information about the observatory, its work and how to use it.
February 21 - On a lark, I requested an image of Uranus to try to see some of its moons - here are 4 of them!
January 23 - We get snow occasionally at ARO and adjacent MRO!
January and February
Some minor repairs and upgrades were done. The servo controller was replaced with a SiTech Servo II along with new Losmandy motors. The USB hubs were also replaced due to some reliability issues and the telescope power supply was replaced.
The robotic software has been updated to match the other related observatories - MRO and BGO.
