The Upper Pad area is some 30 yards northwest of the observatory. Called the "Upper Pad Yacht Club" by its "members" the site boasts a number of large Newtonians and refractors. We would like some historical information about the Upper Pad Area. If any OCA member reading this has such information, please send it to .

The Upper Pad Area occupies the northeastern corner of the property. This view looks to the southwest.

Dave Radosevich focuses on the Sun with his Solaris solar telescope and university model Daystar H-Alpha filter. The Solaris is piggybacked onto an 8" Maksutov which is mounted on a modified Byers mount. This is serious astro hardware at work.
