Coming Out of the Vacuum Chamber

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Steve Follett and Mark Hillestad were in the clean room at Viavi Solutions as their team opened the vacuum chamber and all got their first look at the new mirror coating.  This beauty (!) was carefully moved out of the chamber and moved to the post-process clean room.  Today Mark posted that the mirror is now safely housed in his shop, waiting for its trip to Robert Ferguson Observatory for installation in the telescope mount in the West wing.
