The SPIRIT initiative now has a Facebook and Twitter presence.
The Facebook page provides an ‘open community’ for those wishing to share information and post images. Feel free to join in if you’re already on Facebook.
The best images published on Facebook will make it to our official image gallery.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Hawaiian Property Group in Perth, the SPIRIT program has expanded with a second telescope – SPIRIT II.
The new instrument is a Planewave CDK 17″ telescope, coupled with a more sensitive CCD camera offering twice the field of view of SPIRIT I (see the ‘first light’ image of the near full moon below).
See more pictures of the SPIRIT telescopes in the image galleries.
