Hypoxia

Up at Mt. Graham Intermnational Observatory this week working on the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT) with the Steward Gang. Working at 10,500 ft. is always a pleasure - hypoxia, flatulance, headaches - great stuff! Here are a few images of Ned and Chris preparing the cell for the re-aluminized mirror installation.

I hope you took good care of the VATT - I'm the next scheduled observer on it next month..... Hopefully "Humpty Dumpty" will be back together by then.... :-)
