3towers Observatory

3towersa.jpg (78975 bytes) The 3towers Observatory sits in my front yard on a spare lot north of my house. I purchased the lot to preserve my views of the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson, AZ. The lot borders on 20 acres of open desert containing three 340 foot former AM radio towers. The property is owned by the city of Tucson and is used by the city and Pima County for many communication needs, including their being a part of the regional 911 system. The towers are lit at night by typical red tower lights and are not a hindrance to my observing. I like their grandeur, and they guarantee the continued presence of open land next to me. To the south, the observatory overlooks my house and the city lights of Tucson, AZ, which are beautiful, though the light pollution greatly limits southern observing.
