The 24" telescope will be installed on October 25th, this year! A crane will be driven to the building to lift the pedestal, mount, and telescope into the opened dome. This will take only a few hours. If you didn't see the dome lifted and installed, you don't want to miss this! It will take about two weeks to fully install, align, and wring all the bugs out of the telescope, but the day has finally arrived. At that time, the observatory will be essentially complete!
The AstroScience center also has another improvement. They have added stars and shooting star decorations on the blue outside stairwell walls.
