Dunsink was created by dmcdona

Folks- not sure this belongs in history... Mr. Moderator - please move it if you feel necessary.

What's the story with Dunsink? I remember signing a petition over a year ago (I think) but I've heard nothing more.

Also, there was a lot of discussiion on the boards about some optics gathering dust in the Dunsink basement...

Just wondered...

Cheers

Dave,

You're thinking of the ADH telescope......yes, the optics are in Dunsink but are owned jointly by Dunsink and Armagh Observatories. If Dunsink goes, the optics will undoubtedly go to Armagh and not to a certain observatory in Celbridge.

Dang!

Is Dunsink still operational? Their website is full of broken links... If it is, for how much longer?

And what is the ADH telscope?

So many questions - sorry...

Don't know current position on Dunsink.

Re ADH telescope, have a look at the link I quoted in my last message.
