The OCA Observing Site, commonly refered to simply as "Anza" (after the nearby town of Anza), is located several miles off State Highway 371 down a washboard dirt road. Palomar Mountain can be seen some twelve miles to the southwest. The town of Anza is about seven miles to the north. The site covers twenty acres, of which about twelve acres have been developed for observing. A fifteen year note on the property was paid off in 1996.

This "reverse angle" view of the OCA site was taken from a rock outcropping on the southeastern part of the property. It looks back to the west. The site entrance is on the opposite side of the property so this view is reversed from the way people see the site.


Versions of the Site Panorama


Here are three versions of the panorama. These images are available to club members for use on their own personal web sites.
