A dream of every amateur astronomer, an observatory some feets away from the bedroom. Amateur astronomers today contribute to research at the cutting-edge of science. Mario Motta's observatory near the Atlantic coast at Gloucester, MA. Dr. Motta, a well known physician, owns one of the world's largest amateur telescopes, built by him and members of the Boston astronomy club. The home built 32'' telescope with research level accuracy is mainly used for variable star measurement and detecting exo planet transits. The observatory is a part of Motta's house.
