Welcome to the Claustonberry Observatory

scope2Welcome to the Homepage of the Claustonberry Observatory.  Here you will find the astrophotography works collected at our observing site south of Marengo, Illinois, USA.

The Observatory started collecting images in the Spring of 2013, and since then  has undergone many changes and upgrades.  Additional information about the observatory, as well as the equipment employed, can be found in the ‘About Us‘ section of the website.

In December of 2014, our website has undergone significant changes, and we are working to get our entire imaging catalog back up on the website.  Until then, you can connect with us via Twitter, Youtube, or Flickr to view our extensive catalog of images over the previous years.

Any of our images can be used as long as the image or use there of is not monetized, but we request that images be credited to the Claustonberry Observatory, and that you contact us to let us know.

Thanks for stopping in and enjoy the images!
