The T400 mm is ready!!02/04
That's it, the tube of 120 kg supporting the mirror of 400 mm cut by hand in the 70s by Mr Doucet has just been installed on the slab of the second observatory at Refuge aux étoiles. We thank Didier, for his intervention at the control of the fork of his tractor to position the cradle (100 kg) and the tube. The first light will be done in a while, after optical and mechanical adjustments. The manufacture of a rolling shelter is also underway. It is the bad weather that prevailed so far that has delayed us on this installation.

Installation of the first observatory 21/02/2018
We took advantage of the good weather to install our first observatory. It houses the AP 130 telescope to observe planets as well as deep sky objects in wide fields. It can also be equipped with a full-frame CCD to give breathtaking deep sky images!
The shelter is sliding on rail, it is enough to move it towards the North to make accessible the glasses to the visitors. The instalation of 400mm cradle is in progress ... it will be installed next to another shelter.

Thanks to DARK SKY LAB for protecting our starry nights 26/01/2018
Dark sky lab is a design office that allows communities to learn about their levels of light pollution and to find ways to improve lighting while reducing the impact on the celestial vault and the biosphere. Indeed, many animals (including humans) are disturbed by these nocturnal lighting sometimes awkwardly used.
