Test Site for CTI-II Telescope, Night

The fully automated 10-inch telescope inside the 'RoboDome' (atop the wooden tower) is measuring the sharpness of star images. The testing will enable astronomers to choose the best site at McDonald Observatory for the coming CTI-II Telescope. The domes of three McDonald telescopes are visible at bottom left.
