Telescope meets mount

On Monday 30 January 2017, the MeerLICHT telescope and counterweight were lifted into the observatory dome of the Radboud University, where the telescope and counterweight were connected to the telescope mount. Over the coming month, extensive testing will be performed including on-sky observations.
