PALM-3000 Compoents Arrive

It is always nice when new things come to the observatory. Today the components for the new PALM-3000 upgrade to our adaptive optics system were delivered to the dome of the Hale Telescope.
The PALM-3000 team now has a good four months of work to complete on the system which is currently expected to see first light in February 2011.

For more information you can read an article here on the PALM-3000's new deformable mirror.
