NCC Robotic Observatory Gallery of Deep Sky Objects
(A work in progress)



These images were obtained at the Sierra College Nevada County Campus Robotic Observatory by the Department staff and astronomy students (Astronomy 11 online and Astronomy 14). The NCCRO is equipped with a Celestron 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and an Apogee Instruments CCD camera.

The students access the observatory via the internet and collect the images remotely. These images are then downloaded and processed for use in Laboratory exercises during the course.
