The CGO is located at N34.10 by W117.10 in Cedar Glen Ca. Cedar Glen
is located in Southern Ca, near Lake Arrowhead, located on the North East side of the San Bernardino range at an elevation
of 5,000 feet. Due to the observatory's location, on-shore overcast from the pacific ocean rarely causes viewing
problems. Limiting visual magnitudes run from 6.0-7.0.
The observatory is approx. 50 sq. ft. in size and utilizes a 2.5m Observadome. A spiral
staircase leads from the 100 sq. ft. heated control room on the second floor to the top of the observatory.
The observatory houses a Meade 16" LX200GPS (406mm) mounted equatorially to a
3,000 lb steel pier. CCD imaging is achieved with a Canon 350D and Meade DSI Pro.
