HRM observatory uses a Planewave CDK20 telescope with an Apogee U230 CCD camera as the primary research instrument.  The observatory is about 30 miles north of Tampa, Florida.  The steady air of Florida creates extremely good seeing (usually between 2 and 3 seconds of arc resolution).  The observatory is 18' x 14' in size and includes lighting, electrical, heating and cooling.  An Elk M1 Automations system is used to remotely control all functions of the observatory and it's equipment.  .
