Alain Maury's Blog
Alejandra is a technician in tourism and Alain is an engineer in astronomy. A brief resume is here. Alain visited San Pedro in 2000 and was amazed by the beauty of the sky and the Earth there.
It has been named after the famed planetologist Eugene Shoemaker, but also personal friend of Alain Maury.

One of the more unique offerings is a night time tour of the skies, led by french astronomer Alain Maury and his wife Alejandra. Their home and laboratory in the desert is surrounded by telescopes through which visitors can take a close up look at the moon, planets, and instellar phenomena. Northern Chile is the site of numerous observatories, including the world's largest, because of the clear sky, minimal interference and high altitude.
I took this photo through one of Alain's telescopes, which has been fitted with a camera mount. Note that the orientation of the half moon is horizontal rather than vertical. Those of us who live in the northern hemisphere, Alain explained in a thick french accent, are all walking sidways.

The next observatory was not run ..., 18 Oct 2014 [cached]
The next observatory was not run by ESO, but was a private "amateur" installation near San Pedro, actually run by professional astronomer, Alain Maury. To say that the seeing was "good" does it an injustice. It was phenomenal and the stories you may have heard of seeing shadows cast by the Milky Way are true. Alain and his wife were gracious and wildly funny hosts. The observatory is run both for research, as Alain has discovered two comets and a number of asteroids, and for public outreach.
Over the span of 4 hours, Alain would show us sights as diverse as the Lagoon Nebula, and 47 Tucanae, which started looking like the photos. And of course, the hot chocolate his wife served us made it even all the more special.
