Kryoneri telescope upgrade completed
The second phase of the upgrade of the 1.2m Kryoneri telescope was completed by DFM Engineering, Inc. at the end of June, as scheduled. The prime focus instrument was installed and is operating well. First light images of the Moon were obtained using the new Andor Zyla fast-frame cameras on June 28, 2016. One of these images is shown here. Testing of the components is planned for the rest of the summer, along with the integration of the NELIOTA software.
