A new pier has been installed inside the observatory building and a new floor level
for access to the new telescope has been built around the pier.
This image (left) is an artist's rendition of the 1.6 meter solar telescope that
is currently being manufactured at DFM.
Excellent quality craftsmanship is shown throughout the stages of telescope construction.
For a history of the fabrication accomplishments in the Big Bear Solar Telescope
project to date, NJIT is providing a link
to images and progress notes.
The DFM team estimates the date of installation to be late summer 2008.
