The title truly does it justice! Owning an observatory, no matter how big or small, luxurious or minimal, truly magnifies the amount of satisfaction this hobby gives to the amateur. I am, as I'm typing this, sitting comfortably in my own observatory, listening to music and just watching the setup collect photons from the deep sky! I'm still in the testing phase but currently I'm managing 1 minute unguided exposures with the C9,25 running at f/6.3 and the Canon EOS550D. I am missing about 2 in every 10 shots but I'm expecting those numbers to improve once the guidescope is set up. For now, here's a teaser of what I'm doing...this is going to be a long night!
You live in every amateur astronomer's dream! Well done Agapios!
..hehe thanks! It was well worth the wait!
