If an object is too far south it cannot be observed from a northern site. If it is too far north, it cannot be observed from a southern site. Consider our telescopes at Moore Observatory (latitude +38 degrees (north)) and Mt. Kent Obsevatory (latitutde -28 degrees (south)). Our other site is also north of he equator at Stewart Observatory on Mt. Lemmon in Arizona.
