Deck for the Richie

This Saturday (2/7) Malcolm, Steve, Nels (l to r) & Marty were busy, knee deep in sawdust, working on the deck platform for the Richie. Once completed, the new deck will provide a single surface for observing at the telescope. A ladder will be needed but it will be much smaller and not tied to the dome.


Many thanks to One Call for All for their many years of continued support.
