I plan/intend to get the 36-inch operational in the observatory by this coming solstice. Got the mirror coated with enhanced aluminum last spring at Evaporated Metal Films (EMF) in Ithaca, NY. I went out to the storage shed to check on it, still looks great. Just added a couple gun safe heaters (16 W total), two GIANT indictor silica gel desiccators, a viewing window, and a thermometer. Will have similar protection at the telescope (in the dome) as well. Determined to get 1st light early this season!

The pics are self-explanatory. Protecting the glass and coating are paramount. Tom Dey
