Upgrading the UCT Astronomy Tony Fairall Teaching Observatory
1 Jan 2019 - 06:15
In January 2019, the Astronomy department will upgrade the domes of the Tony Fairall Teaching Observatory on UCT upper campus. This will include the replacement of the old domes on the roof of the RW James building, and the installation of a new Celestron 14-inch telescope in the west dome, dedicated for optical spectroscopy.
We will post the progress of this upgrade on our departmental Facebook site. Watch this space.
