Whistlestop Observatory


27.56.24N  82.54.61W

These are the Web Pages of Chip Frappier and his WhistleStop Observatory. So named due to the fact that the Observatory is built on property, once owned by the Tampa Southern Railroad, a subsidiary of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad which is now CSX. There are no tracks or other signs that a railroad was here, they were all removed over 70 years ago.

Now stands my 10' X 14' Skyshed roll-off roof Observatory.

 It is primarily used for casual observing of the night sky and obtaining images of the treasures in that night sky.

Although, I am just starting my astrophotography, I hope you enjoy the images and information posted on this site!
