Another major task is to install a new spectrograph called FRODOSPEC. This instrument will allow users to look at the spectrum of a star, which is a bit like looking at its finger-print, and can tell us what sort of chemicals are in the star's atmosphere.
Why not keep an eye on the LT upgrade using the live webcam.
Unfortunately, these upgrades mean that the LT will be offline from 5th September 2007 for around 10 days. During this time, NSO observers and professional astronomers will be unable to obtain images of the night sky. However, you can still use Go Observing to order images, but they will not be taken until the LT is back up and running. In the meantime, you could always look at observations in the LT archive, which contains hundreds of images taken by other schools in the past, or even use one of the Image of the Month observations.
