A while back I wrote about our efforts to ensure that every observation taken by a public user of our telescope network has a permanent web presence. As well as providing a page for each observation with relevant information, it allowed people to browse through the tens of thousands of observations by user and by telescope.
You may have noticed that our website has been pretty quiet over October and early November. This is because we have been preparing for a relaunch. The previous incarnation of the site had stood us in good stead for the past ~5 years but it was time for a change.

Site construction is continuing smoothly at Tiede Observatory and at McDonald Observatory while domes have begun being assembled at SAAO.
On September 1, FLOYDS achieved first light! This is a great accomplishment for all involved! A calibration lamp were used to achieve a rough alignment and the spectra.
Members of the LCOGT supernova team have been monitoring the evolution of a newly discovered supernova in M101. The discovery was made by the Palomar Transient Factory team on 24 August, which LCOGT astronomers are part of.
