TAO (a.k.a. CBA, Tsukuba) is my private observatory in Tsukuba, Japan.
#It was formaly one of CBA (Center for Backyard Astrophysics) member  but , recently, operated with loose coraboration to various astronomical communites (VSnet, AAVSO, VSOLJ etc.). 
Main targets of TAO is novae, supernovae and dwarf novae.

(2013 July)
TAO moved to Kamagaya, Chiba, Japan


Main equipment
Meade 25cmSCT(F6.3)+iOptron CEM60EC+Apogee Alta F47 (EEV 1024x1024)+Optec IFW (Jhonson-Cousins VRcIc stromgren y)
