WELCOME TO DEEP SKY WEST
DSW is a remote astrophotography observatory situated on Rowe Mesa in Rowe, New Mexico. This 35 acre high altitude site (elevation 7,400 feet) offers pristine dark skies, excellent seeing, and weather conditions coveted by all imagers. We make remote imaging and hosting affordable for the “average” backyard astrophotographer.
DSW “Alpha” is actually the first of several ”roll off building” observatories (“ROBO”) and is designed and operated specifically with the backyard astrophotographer in mind. We’ve created a professional, state-of-the-art, yet affordable and convenient astrophotography environment for you to host your own telescope, join an existing team, or become a member of a team on our equipment.
