Solar telescope is ready!
The solar telescope comes into operation for the 2023 season, with a primary mirror made by us not aluminized, it promises beautiful images and safe observation!
Foucault test
the mirror is finished!! 
The 25 cm mirror started at the beginning of 2021 is finished, we had put the project on hiatus during the summer. The resumption in the fall allowed us to parabolize the mirror and make it suitable for observing the stars. A huge thank you to Franck Griere and Daniel Palazy without whom this project will not have succeeded.
Making a telescope mirror!!
Since this winter we have launched into the size of a 25 cm mirror. Starting from a block of raw glass and shaping it to observe planets and galaxies, this is the challenge that we are going to try to meet! The photos of the manufacturing steps here.
