Pictures of Sundial Construction & Installation
Please donate to our Sundial Project so we can finish. Thank you.
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.
Many thanks to the Bainbridge Community Foundation for their support of our Sundial Project
Many thanks to the Bainbridge Island Rotary for their grant to allow us to obtain a Solar Telescope for our educational outreach programs.
