Working Bee at the Gifford Observatory
March- date to be decided. The Gifford Observatory is located on Mt. Victoria and is accessed via Wellington College.
Assistant Curator of Instruments Andrew Fuller advises that the Gifford Observatory’s dome is rotating but we need to upgrade the motors. That will probably require grant funding to address. In the meantime, we need to mow the lawn, fix the gate, and do a few small jobs around the observatory. If you are keen to help, contact Andrew to let him know your availability in March.
The next step for the Gifford Observatory upgrade is to form a sub-committee to help finish the build phase on the Gifford and get to the operational phase. Again, you can volunteer here.
