Some progress - It's been a great couple of days at Swan Reach Imaging. First up we got our power station finally up and running (thanks to Geomatters Pty Ltd), we installed the solar panel system and the batteries over the last month but had to wait for the inverter and charger to be installed to allow power to operate. Secondly today we established the first stage of the security system, so far we are not using much power out of the 79kwh we have on hand. Thirdly we have our all sky installed and operating. We anticipate that the roll off roof will be installed in late September and operation of the facility will occur sometime in December this year.

Of note in the night sky image is the IR lighting up the trees which can be seen on left edge of the allsky image. We will eliminate this during imaging operations so that it does not affect our customers or prevent them from making the most of the night skies in the Reserve. We are pretty happy with how the sky looks and are looking forward to showing you more in the next month.
