My thanks to the EIU Electricians for last week finding and installing a new transformer to the observatory. Just in time for the open house tonight. It looks like cloud cover, but we always have people even in the middle of a thunderstorm. If you’ve never been at an observatory it’s almost as much fun looking at the telescope as through the telescope . Plus if your nice, you get to rotate the DOME!! Here is a couple pictures of the field after the wind storm. Including the tracker-trailer and porto-pottie near the dome. Both of which are now upright. Thanks to the people in physical plant.
