New Mexico Skies

This is the New Mexico Skies site near Cloudcroft New Mexico. A very nice couple runs this private observatory where telescopes sites are rented out and run remotely. This image was taken at 25mm focal length with an exposure of 1/500 seconds at f/8, ISO 200.

are you in NM??? wow :D

I remember they were telling that they will boost the discovery of solar system minor bodies and bright supernovaes. Unfortunately it is still pretty silent. Perhaps because of high price of renting?
