CCD Sky Observatory is a small amateur observatory located in Southern California, USA owned and operated by Christopher Cappelli. It operates each clear night, collecting images of distant objects through my telescope.

Astronomy has been a life long passion of mine. Starting from a very early age I have enjoyed studying the mechanics and explored the mysteries of the night sky.

By day, I am a professional geographer working at Esri, Inc. a private company dedicated to changing the world by empowering people to understand how geography impacts their work, the decisions they make, and our world.

The images captured through my telescope and camera are available for you to see and experience through this website.
