Status of Primary Mirror Re-Aluminization


By admin - Posted on 12 April 2012

We will re-aluminize the primary mirror during summer shutdown 2013.  While we had planned to do it this summer, we feel our success will be optimized by waiting another year while we continue with our preparations, meetings, and discussions among staff and with other colleagues.  Due to this, we'll have a normal  shutdown period this summer, beginning on July 24 and resuming operations on August 21.
