PANOPTES ready for Stellafane

To help me make progress on building my Project PANOPTES robotic telescope, I enlisted an external motivator: I entered it into the Mechanical Competition at Stellafane, which is this coming Saturday. With some help from a neighbor, Noel Qiao, the telescope is ready to show. I'm relieved and happy!

Here is an album with more photos. If you're planning to be at Stellafane, stop by and take a look in person.

I also signed up for Stellafane's "Friday Informal Talks," so now need to come up with a brief presentation about Project PANOPTES, exoplanets, etc.
