The Little Thompson Observatory 24-inch telescope has had a long journey. Brought to Berthoud a couple of years ago it had to await the construction of the second pier and dome at the observatory. The instrument was finally put in place last October and has been awaiting funding to complete the installation.
The Loveland Reporter-Herald gives an update:
