Berthoud at night
and more telescopes!
Dr. Andrea Schweizer
Back in February we saw Dr. Schweizer at the Science Cafe talk about the International Year of Astronomy. The other night she was at the Little Thompson Observatory to help build the Galileo Telescope kit.
On the way to the big telescope!
They put out a light rope so you could find your way at night. It's pretty dark on the south side of Berthoud, but that's a good thing!
18" Cassegrain telescope
We were hoping to look out of the retired 24-inch Mount Wilson telescope that was recently moved to the observatory earlier this year, but the mirror was being refurbished and the mount needed rebuilding, so we won't see it in operation until sometime next year.
