My observatory is located at Tivoli Southern Sky Guest Farm in the red sands of the Kalahari desert at the tropic of Capricorn. The site is ideal for astronomical observations as the weather is very stable with excellent seeing conditions, low humidity and 260 to 280 clear nights a year.
The observatory is fully automated and controllable via the internet. In addition, it is equipped with an All-Sky-Camera, SQM and a weather monitoring system.
