Peter Bolas Working Party Bank Holiday Monday 6/5/2019

On a cloudy, and occasionally slightly raining, Bank Holiday Monday, Ed, Heather, Julian, Chris and myself turned up at the Peter Bolas Observatory for some emergency modifications to the dome to prevent water ingress, work on the dome motor and gearing, feeding cabling from the observing room into the pillar through the under-floor ducting, and other tasks.

Things are moving fast – won’t be long before we see first light through the telescope in the dome.

Today was first light for radio observing at the Peter Bolas Observatory, Rosliston Forestry Centre – see also associated post from today:
