This week we are very happy to release images of the finished concrete foundations for the iTelescope observatory at Siding Spring.
It was a massive dawn with several truck loads of concrete mix climbing the mountain during the very early hours. Some of the trucks had been on the road since well before dawn and had traveled over 100 kilometers to the site.
It was perfect day for pouring concrete and the final result is stunning. A smooth, strong and stable concrete construction that will be the base upon which many telescopes will be installed in the coming months.
During th next 14 days of 'rest & cure' period, the prefabricated steel frames and walls of the observatory will be constructed. It is currently being manufactured in our workshop in Coonabarabran.
