As announced in the latest newsletter from the UT Arlington Astronomy Department, The Starry Messenger, in addition to their state-of-the-art planetarium they will soon have a new observatory. Housing a 16" Meade LX200 (including CCD camera), it is primarily going to serve the students of the department, the school also has plans to host public viewing nights. The observatory is scheduled to be operational in Fall 2009.
Links on this blog have been configured to open in a new window. I know some people consider that a bad practice, that it should be left to the visitor. Personally, I prefer not "loosing my place" in a blog just because I clicked on a link without explicitly indicating it should open in a new window. I hope you agree.
