The Waid Observatory is a privately owned amateur facility operated from two locations. The primary location is from my observatory on the outskirts of Denton, Texas. I also operate astronomical equipment from my residence in Margate, Florida. The observatory is dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of Amateur Astronomy and in particular to the imaging of celestial wonders of the night sky.
Over 5 hours of educational presentations are now available on DVD.
