And the work continues!!

Thanks to all that came out on Saturday June 18th we are making headway on the outside wall coverings and the roof trusses. We will meet again soon keep an eye on the netslyder for date and time.

We have had a lot of rain in May and early June at the site so the ground is saturated please be sure to stay on the road or on the observing field as the other areas are very soft. The low water crossing has had water running in it from a few inches to all the way to the top so if you are going out right after a rain please be very careful!!!

Please watch the web site for future announcements of training sessions on the new MX and 12” RC scope in the observatory which everyone that has been trained on using the observatory must take.

Summer constellations are up and waiting for you at the Columbus Dark Site, hope to see you there soon.

If you find any issues while at the site, please be sure to e-mail me so we can take care of them.
