We recently hosted a workshop in our Santa Barbara headquarters at the end of the KITP annual teachers' conference. During the tour around the facilities, one teacher (Steve Cooperman) took some stereograms and made anaglyphs out of them (click on the images to the right, for bigger versions). He has kindly provided us with some very nice examples (you will need to put on old-fashioned red-blue 3D glasses for the full effect). These images of are of our testing rig for the 1m, which currently has 2 co-mounted, smaller telescopes on it. Below Steve has given us an account of how he achieved it.
Experienced amateur astronomer, Richard Miles, recently visited Faulkes Telescope South . Richard has been leading our recent observing programme to follow a cometary outburst, and provides expert advice for our Asteroids and Comets programme . He was on holiday in Australia and took some excellent long exposure images of the night sky where you can see FTS and stars!
