Images of the Observatory April 2012. The primary construction was completed late September 2012. The 16 inch F4 Telescope inside is under construction in March/April 2012.

The SkySolve camera can be seen in test on the roof. The small object on the corner of the North facing wall is the LDR sensor for the Observatory control room and weather station
