LBTO 2021 Summer Shutdown Posted on Aug 19, 2021
Unlike in the summer 2020, where shutdown was reduced to a few essential activities with limited staff, LBTO was able to organize a full shutdown this summer, thanks to vaccination, testing, masking, and adequate protocols when needed. One main mirror was successfully aluminized and the other one washed. Instruments and telescope maintenance is ongoing. We will back on sky on Sep 1st for a restart of the observatory before moving to our 21B observing season.
