BMK deployed to Chile

BMK has been set up at Cerro Armazones Observatory in Chile.

The BMK is lifted into the dome by a crane.

The BMK and the equipment arrived months ahead and have been waiting to be assembled in its new home.

The precious 10k CCD camera has been shipped separatly.

Dome installed

Dome is erected and is basically functional via the standard Ash electrical interface. The previous Hexapod pyramid is gone and the concrete telescope pillar now under construction. It will be ready by the end of August.
