As of August 15, 2023 we have installed a focal reducer.   Thus, all calibration that has taken place before is no long er applicable.


New Camera Bin to 3x3

  • April 24, 2023 - 00:48:16

We got a new camera for the HSC telescope.  The pixels are very small, so bin it to 3x3.

We have a focal reducer or order, so the field of view will increase this summer.
