Today David, Mike and Charles got the battery box bolted down and the batteries installed in the observatory.
They also began the process of setting up and wiring the pier now that the flooring is down.
Our President, Charles Ennis, has been researching small observatories all over the world in order to write a handbook for the RASC for people interested in building themselves such an observatory for their own use. He has spoken to amateur astronomers all over Canada and the US, in Japan, Australia, Tasmania, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Belgium, and the UK. He’s also on the observatory committee responsible for our Centre’s own small observatory project. At 7:30 on 9 January, 2015 at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, 5714 Medusa St, Sechelt, Charles will talk about what he has learned about what to do (and what not to) when approaching a project such as this.
