Hello all, this page is about the Heavens Mirror Remote Observatory in the Sierra Nevada Mountians CA. It is located in the SRO observatory complex. At an elevation of 4610 ft it is above most of the fog and thermal inversion layer. It is an extremely darksite with excellent seeing and a large number of clear nights. Every Astrophotographer’s dream! This observatory is remotly operatered via the Internet. So when it’s cloudy at home I can still image:-)
