The 36-inch telescope was built by the Chabot staff
with some engineering advice from engineers at DFM Engineering.
The telescope was completed in June of 2003 with the
installation of the telescope control system.
The DFM Engineering and fabrication staff
custom designed and fabricated the control system for
the telescope including the control computer, the control
software, the R.A. and Declination secondary drives,
and the focus drive.
