MONET/South has been down for about a week due to repairs to the roof (a failed proximity sensor and 2 small bearings in the roof mechanism).  

 

From 15 Feb to about 10 March it will also be down for various upgrades:

  • re-machining the camera flange in preparation for the MORISOT spectrograph pick-off unit
  • installation of the piggyback telescope at the 2nd Nasmyth focus
  • replacement of the roof controller
  • restoring the connection to our weather station
  • installment of a new interior webcam
  • alignment of the telescope optics
