Welcome to LOZWOTT!

LOZWOTT (Lake of the Ozarks Workshop of the Telescopes) is an under construction amateur observatory on the upper west end of the Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri.

Its a custom designed roll-off roof observatory with 10′ x 20′ total space, consisting of a 7’x10′ control room/office and a 13’x10′ telescope area. The telescopes at LOZWOTT will be a 12″ Meade LX200 EMC, a custom made 12.5 Inch f/4.5 Newtonian, and a Celestron Spotting scope. LOZWOTT will eventually be fully online, with remote observing capabilities. Here are some pics of the construction progress up until July 29th, 2020. This BLOG will continue with construction progress from this point on in individual posts.
