Although I use the CDK20 for photometry work on exoplanet research, I occasionally can't resist taking a picture or two.  The following photographs show the kind of pictures that can be taken from the observatory.  Florida is unique in that it has a very steady atmosphere (no mountains to create turbulence) so images are especially stable with high resolution.  Usually the resolution is between 2 and 3 seconds of arc as shown in a screen print below.
