Most of the repairs to damage caused by last May’s lighting strike have been made. New weather station is operating, as are the webcams. Camera (COWCAM) on 32” telescope has been repaired and upgraded and is undergoing testing. 24” telescope RA dial motor is being replaced. 15” telescope will shortly be taken down for storage to accommodate the new 14” telescope loaned to us by PSU, to be used for research by students.
