Observatory ImprovementsLeave a Comment
The observatory will be closed June 18 through July 1 for shutter seal replacement. As part of the new heated roof contract, the p-seal and flapper seal used to seal the gap between the two shutter halves when in the closed position will be replaced. This work was scheduled to take place before the start of the monsoon season. Regular shutdown will be July 24-August 13 during which various maintenance tasks are scheduled.
