I just finished painting the South Dome’s decking which finishes the Spring cleaning of the two dome’s for this year.

The South Dome has just had a re-injection of life for the Hyperstar III with the addition of a 9-Megapixel SX814C OSC CCD and a Lodestar X2 guide camera.  Just waiting now for a clear night to get the guide refractor focused up and the guide camera rotated into NSEW position, and the main 814C imaging camera needs to be collimated to the Hyperstar III.  Once this is done it is Hyperstar time once again at the New Forest Observatory.
