the pier is installed!

We picked up the pier from the welder on Friday and painted and installed it this weekend!

We’re getting real close to having first light in here.   You can see the burn marks along the walls where the lightning ran when it struck it last year.

We’ll probably paint over all that, but it’s just a cosmetic thing and nothing critical to function.  We still need to install some cushiony tile on the floor so a dropped eyepiece won’t shatter if we drop one.
