Firefly is a private astronomical observatory located in Asheville, NC.  The building is a roll-off-roof design.  It houses a Celestron 14-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain f/11 telescope as the primary instrument, controlled by a Paramount-ME robotic mount.  A Stellarvue 90mm TBV refractor rides piggy-back and serves as  a rich-field secondary telescope.

“There is precious little hope to be got out of whatever keeps us industrious,
but there is a chance for us whenever we cease work and become stargazers.”
