A big thank you to the Bitcoin community for contributing over $80 to Project Drax at The Spaceguard Centre.

This has bought over 100 bricks for the new telescope building.  When complete, this will be the biggest telescope in Wales and dedicated to surveying Potentially Hazardous Asteroids.

We are now starting to think about the CCD device that will be required -- the image forms on a concave 6-inch circular disk.  Most likely this will be a mosaic of chips.  It is going to be somewhat expensive !
