Trailer Scope
I've been an active amateur astronomer for nearly four decades.  The instrument shown is my trailer mounted classical cassegrain.  I observe from my home in Bradenton, FL but try to get to darker sky sites whenever possible.  I grew up in East Tennessee and had several observatories at my parents farm.  I always called them Windy Hill ever since I lost an observatory roof due to high winds. My latest observing site, from my home in Florida, is now Windy Hill 5 because of the steady coastal breezes it receives.
