Considering the short notice, we wanted to give our T17 users, a chance to finish up any outstanding projects they have on T17. If this is going to present a problem with completion of projects, please contact us so we can try to accommodate you.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate the understanding of members as we move ever closer to our Siding Spring Observatory Site Opening.
