1m DFM Telescope Installation
at the Gingin Observatory
"The Zadko Telescope"
 
 

The University of Western Australia is celebrating the anniversary of the "Zadko" telescope installation. DFM Engineering installed the 1m telescope at the Gingin Observatory early in 2008.

The 1m DFM telescope also features the Articulated Relay Eyepiece™ (ARE-125). The ARE-125 uses a series of relay lenses and folding mirrors to reposition the telescope focal plane a considerable distance from the tail piece of the telescope allowing a person seated in a wheel chair to simply pick up the eyepiece and bring it to their eye for convenient viewing regardless of telescope position.
