Come On Out And Take Your Own Pictures!

Since Honey Creek Observatory has a telescope capable of astrophotography, a page has been created to allow viewing of a large number of photos in a slideshow format.  We are in the process of building the observatory in a new location so new photos will be added later. Clicking on this link will take you to the slideshow page.  I believe you will find that the mouse over commands are obvious. One more thing - When you wish to return to this page, Do Not Use Your Back Arrow.  Use the "Back To Home" arrow at the upper left of the header or the button at the end of the slideshow.
