Cool The Huntsman Telescope and daytime astronomy

The Huntsman Telescope at Siding Spring uses off-the-shelf components that
enables daytime observation of objects such as Betelgeuse as well as daytime
satellite tracking.

Thank you Gary, what an amazing COTS instrument package and program.

Currently, an RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM lens retails for between Au $17,500-19,000 (note RF and not EF).

Dennis.
