I am currently interviewing people who have built small observatories in preparation for creating a book for the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada on the subject of small observatory projects. Would you be willing to speak to me about your BOSS observatory project? My centre is in the process of completing its own small observatory: You can check out our progress on our web site: You can contact me at Skype at charles.ennis

Regards, Charles Ennis

Media Director, Sunshine Coast Centre, Royal Astronomical Society of Canada

Dear BOSS-Team,  congratulations with your excellent BOSS website on which I just stumbled whilst searching for "supernova hunters".  Very informative and inspiring.  Your images are of very good quality and quite unusual - you don't see these often.  I will try to look at (some of) the SNs you have discovered with my Celestron 14" Edge HD (which has just arrived). I live in Perth, WA, so it should be possible.  All the best.   Rob DvL

Absolutely amazing images Stu! Saying "WOW!" doesn't do them justice. Hopefully that PC fan works out for your telescope!
