New place of The Nightspirit Observatory!!!

Good news!

Now, The Nightspirit Observatory has new place!
In July 2016, I and my wife relocated to the our apartments in Kyiv, in the surroundings of the city.
Nearly, half year my telescope didn't work. Some episodical observations was obtained in period from July and till December. But real observations was started in January 2017.

How it was on the start...

The Observatory has South side with stationary pier. Also North side available too in the other side of the apartment in expedition mode with mobile mount (EQ3/EQ5 on tripod).

South side

Stars of 5 mag are avaliable for visual observations (Without optics). The southern side goes beyond the city limits (green zone of light pollutions).  Sometimes Milky Way is avaliable on the dark background.

Visual limit magnitude:
