Welcome to the Hearst Observatory webpage.
The Hearst Observatory is a work in progress, but the ultimate goal is to have a building housing
multiple telescopes for remote operation, research and personal projects on our property in Valley Center, California. The equipment inventory is always growing, the building site has been picked, and all
the hard work seems like a never ending project. This page will cover the steps as the project comes to a completion, or I retire from my work, not sure which will be first!. Explore the pages, links, and
don't forget to check back, because our talents as web page builders/amateur astronomers are bound to improve with time. This page is mainly dedicated to sharing astronomy with anyone who would be interested and
to our family and friends.
