Hope the restored telescope will be better looked after than it was after it was restored the last time back in the late '90's

Sounds great, I hope they have learned from the serious mistakes they made with the software control system and hydraulics. When they say restore, I wonder do they really mean repaired or a real overhaul of any substandard systems ... time will tell.
