Mark’s Remote Observatory-II (MRO-II)
You may well recall the Mars Renaissance Orbiter which is studying the red planet. Well MRO-II is not entirely related to the NASA mission that cost $720 million and I hope at least, that it will come in a little cheaper. MRO-II is a slightly less ambitious project to setup my telescope system at a remote location, about 20 kilometres away from my home. As the project proceeds I will be posting updates right here, warts and all. You can join in with my successes and commiserate with the inevitable mistakes and frustrations along the way. Keep checking back for updates.
