My Home Observatory has a problem virtually no southern horizon.
My house dominates my southern sky. Any object below - 20° Dec is simply not a usable target. I was willing to live with that limitation, but at the 2017 AIC I was presented with an alternative - Chilescope.
Chilescope is an observatory located near La Serena, Chile that rents time on their 3 telescopes. So far I have been using the 500mm Newtonians. In January I have a project that will involve the 1 meter scope. For more information see their website
Being in a dark site means that LRGB and not just narrowband is
possible. Thus I have many projects planned both with galaxies and
some of my more usual narrowband work.
