Denver Observer

Dark Site Observatory Code

EDMUND G. KLINE DARK SITE
OBSERVATORY CODE

The Edmund G. Kline Dark Site now has an observatory code! It is : H05.

 

OBSERVATORY CODE: H05
Longitude: w 103: 55: 45.2

 

Latitude: 39: 38: 39.1

 

Elevation: 1569 meters

 


This is for the upper, South end of the site;  a better location for those who want to do astroimaging and astrometric measurements. The code was obtained by Joe Gafford who made astrometric measurements on four asteroids over two nights onsite, and then submitted them to the Minor Planet Center.

When sending in the astrometric measurements, use the code if you are doing it on the EGK site only. This is for sending in asteroid, comet, and supernova reports. No longitude and latitude information is needed.
