ARI (Astronomical Research Institute) has a new home! The new location is about twelve miles outside of Charleston, Illinois. It is a darker location, and the telescopes should be able to see objects that are about .7 magnitudes dimmer. Last month was the wettest October since 1942, and after several weeks of delays , and a couple of cranes stuck in the mud, the 32″ telescope was moved. pictures below: (Photos by J Conwell)
