Once again, sed proved helpful, but sometimes it's harder to make sed perform like the scalpel than to run a quick grep search and manually edit.
This is an engineering-notes blog. After publishing the first entry, I was alerted that these are sent to subscribers around the world. Apologies if this isn't your cup of tea, but I'm hoping to share another side of our project with the world! And I heard blog readers love pictures.
This is an engineering-notes blog. I plan on posting regular updates on my day-to-day happenings in a very casual format.
Saturday was a case of “third time is
the charm” in terms of scheduling a star party for the Santa
Barbara Astronomical Unit (SBAU) as the first two attempts were
weathered out. Even Saturday evening when we were gathering at
The cover of this week's Santa Barbara
Independent (June 16-23, 2011, Vol. 25, No. 283) features not only
LCOGT, but how Santa Barbara is rising “to become a center of the
astronomy universe.” (from the cover of the SB Independent).
It is that time of year again when the
Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) announces the winners of their
eight awards, which include amateur astronomy and outreach efforts,
significant contributions to astronomy research, outstanding Ph.D
thesis, and teaching at different levels.
Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network (LCOGT) achieved a critical milestone today, with two 40’ containers leaving their Santa Barbara headquarters en route to the CTIO observatory node in Chile. Inside the containers are three sets of enclosure walls designed and built by LCOGT for our 1-meter class telescopes.
