The ACE 24" telescope is due to be delivered in early August. It will be delivered in one piece, the lifted up with a crane and inserted through the open dome slit into the dome. It will then be mounted on the steel framework that provides a vibrationless base for the massive instrument. After the telescope is installed,the various cameras and other pieces will be installed so normal telescope operation can begin. Below is a picture of the telescope, still located at the ACE workshop in Tucson Arizona.
