Captured on 7th January 2022 with the Alan Young Telescope by Ivan Walton, Rod Smith and Ted Pearson.
There is some image improvement from the recent resilvering of the 22.5 inch primary mirror of the Alan Young telescope. But still more work to do on the collimation. Examples here …
I am pleased to report that the Alan Young Telescope at Cranbrook School, is now again in working condition.
Both mirrors of this large reflecting telescope, primary and secondary mirrors, have been re-silvered by Orion Optics.
