Meade 16" Schmidt Cassegrain

Donated by Dr Peter Hindle

We were lucky enough to be given a 16" telescope and dome by retired professional astronomer Dr Peter Hindle.
Our plans are to install this telescope at our new site (subject to planning permission and funding - which has now been given)

Dismantling the dome and telescope
