Pictured below you’ll see two of the students, Bill, and Alicia, from our new Upper level Astronomical Techniques course. They are closing up the observatory after our first night out, yesterday, doing CCD work.  They and three other student, Sam, Maggie and Matt, were learning all about the joys of installing a CCD camera, making USB connections work, and last but not least focusing. This course is one of two new upper level  courses that are core for the new astronomy-option physics major. It would not have been possible without the generous contribution of the two donors to the observatory, Randy Wright and Dr. P. Scott Smith.
