Our 6"F/10 refractor is under major refurbishment after a good 22 year run plus one major earthquake. Both the tube assembly along with the mount are receiving repairs and some redesigning. Telescope scheduled to reopen in the Spring of 2012. At the website I'll put up a link to SLOOH. For viewing we do have both our 4" & 10" telescopes.
cheers

No observing with any telescope due to such high winds. The refurbished tube assembly for the 6 inch refractor is coming along. Basically I took out the push pull cell. cheers
