M81 and 82 taken from PVO on 4-2-13.

Welcome to

Promethean Visions Observatory (PVO)

The Observatory is located in Fenton, Michigan.

The Observatory is a Skyshed POD model XL3 with PZT option.  It houses one telescope and a computer to control both imaging and (soon) remote operation of the telescope.

See the "Equipment" tab at left for details on the tools I use to observe and take images.

Images taken from PVO can be found on the "Astrobin feed" page.

Please see the menu at the side for site navigation - the "Escher's Happenings" and "Heliofocal" Blogs are found there.
