Current Status

We have recently carried out a servicing mission where the following tasks were completed: changed the PIRATE broad band filter set from Baader LRGB to Johnson BVR, changed the COAST camera to a 3k chip version of the camera already on PIRATE (FLI Proline), changed the COAST broad band filter set from Johnson BVR to Baader LRGB. The COAST focussing issue was resolved. The COAST Schmidt plate received a clean to remove built-up dust and debris as did the PIRATE primary mirror.

We are currently commissioning the new camera on COAST and performing testing of the new set-ups on both telescopes. We expect to open the request queue to existing users soon.
