I'm selling my house and observatory which is located about 10 miles outside of Tucson Arizona. I'm only about 25 miles from Kitt Peak Observatory and you can easily see many of the telescopes from my yard! There's just way too much info to list here so if interested contact me. House is a 2-story stucco house with about 2400 sq.ft located on an acre of land. The house is less than 2 years old and has a nice in-ground swimming pool, a large covered patio and a large deck, beautiful open floorplan. The observatory is a roll-off style consisting of two seperate rooms. One room is insulated with A/C and heat and the other room houses the telescope (on a concrete pier) and the roof on this room rolls off over the insulated room thus there is no truss structure for the roof (HOA requirement). Approx. size 200 sq. ft. Concrete floor. Electricity and networking from house.

Asking price for everything is $230k. This doesn't include any of the astronomical equipment which I may be interested in selling seperate (12" LX200, ST-9E CCD, etc) but I haven't decided yet. Although only located 10 miles from Tucson because of the strict lighting code the summer Milky Way is easily visible and is quite amazing! The eastern sky up to about 30 degrees is washed out but the other directions are quite dark especially to the south (nothing but Mexico in that direction) and the west (nothing but Indian Reservation and Kitt Peak in that direction)! The skies to the north are also quite dark.

If interested I have a website set up that has lots of pictures and information about the house. Unfortunately, Astromart doesn't allow website to be listed in their ads (but hey I'm not complaining, because it is free and I'm sure they have their reasons). If you'll just email me I'll be more than happy to give you the website address.
