17-Inch Dean Glace Observatory

A 17-inch telescope was recently installed at DSO. Donated by Dean Glace, it will be shared by ASU and Dean Glace, remote observing from his home in South Carolina.

Shown at left, the scope was installed with the help of ASU staff Lee Hawkins (Observatory Engineer), Mike Hughes and Dana Greene (machinists), and Adam Smith. Of course, Dean Glace was there as well!

Images and further information can be found at Dean Glace's website.

Full automatic/remote use was provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Major Research Instrumentation Program.
