Meet the SkyPi Remote Observatory Team!!!!

SkyPi now has a Team page to announce the members of our team and give everyone an opportunity to meet each member.

First and foremost is John Evelan, the founding member of SkyPi. Without his skill, dream and tenacity SkyPi would not exist. He is always looking for new and innovative ways to improve operations. His desire is to make remote imaging affordable to the general astronomy community.  He has made that desire a reality.

Kevin Brown, our construction foreman/security manager and close friend. He has been with SkyPi from its’ inception and has contributed a lot of blood, sweat and tears. He works with John in the planning and construction of each observatory. Thank you Kevin!

Our newest member, Thomas Felber, is our IT developer and consultant. We are very lucky to have him on our team and he has quickly become a good friend to both John and I. He will soon be imaging at SkyPi so look for some wonderful images to be posted on our website. Tom currently resides in Vienna, Austria and we look forward to his next visit to the U.S.

Last, but not least, is Bob Birkett. Bob and John have been close friends for many years. Bob is the SkyPi astrophotography and imaging consultant. His telescope resides in the Alpha building at SkyPi and you can view some of his latest work on our site as well as Bob’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bob.birket  Bob and his son, Brian, have been a valuable asset during the construction of the observatories.

As for me, Janet Pogue, I am a managing member, accountant, sales/marketing and chief cook and bottle washer for SkyPi Remote Observatories. Have questions about imaging at SkyPi and what it would take? Shoot me an email and I will assist you in any way I can.

In the meantime, peruse the rest of our website and check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SkypiOnlineObservatoryLlc .
