A Pair of Pete’s Projects

Every now and then, Pete gets called upon to breathe some new life into an older telescope. This month we see two fine instruments get a makeover and be returned to their owners:


The 30″ Evans Telescope (Pictured), owned by the Linden Observatory and maintained by WSAAG, has gone from push-to to Go-to with a full ServoCat and ArgoNavis system as well as focuser and mirror cell improvements. Read their great first light write-up!

Secondly, The Astronomical Society of Victoria has had their 25″ Obsession brought up-to date in similar style with the full go-to treatment and also plenty of extras to help with those climate extremes.
