The JAR Observatory - Benbrook, Texas

Named after my father, who unfortunately passed away before he could help me build it. The John Arthur Rector Observatory is up and running, managed entirely by Voyager. 8’ x 12’ Control Room and 12’ x 12’ telescope room with dual piers. We have one pier up and running and we’re working on the other.

Pier 1 (Pollux) has a Sky-Watcher Esprit 120ed and an ASI2600MM Pro.

Pier 2 (Castor) will have our Celestron EdgeHD 9.25 once we get a 2nd mount.

Congratulations, it’s wonderful.

I take this opportunity to offer my condolences for the loss of your father … anyone who goes through these events knows very well how much pain it feels. He will be proud of your work.

We are waiting for many beautiful images from your observatory.

All the best


I can only echo Leo ! Sincere congratulations for your work - looking forward to getting your images.

Warm regards,
