New Sirius dome arrives at Perth Observatory
image of Sirius domeOur workshop is filled to the brim with a new dome that has just arrived. The 3.5m Sirius robotic dome will house our solar telescope, currently in the University dome, and will also be used for astrophotography. It will sit on a Paramount ME mount. All going well, the then vacant University dome will likely house a SKYNET telescope in 2015. Exciting times ahead for Perth Observatory so watch this space!
