Rob Hawley's Web Page

Welcome.  I am a serious amateur astronomer, eclipse chaser, and budding astrophotographer. I am a board member and volunteer at FPOA.   Come by some time and say hello!

These pages are intended to share some of the work that I have done with the rest of the community.

Almaden Observatory has a problem.  Aside from being located in one of the largest cities in America it also has almost no southern horizon.  The house obstructs any object further south than -30 dec.  Fortunately at the 2017 AIC I was presented a solution - ChileScope. This is a telescope near La Serena Chile that rents time.  In the next few months I will be posting images taken in the Southern Hemisphere of objects either not visible from California or barely visible.
