Anssen Technologies has been involved in the research and
development of astronomical equipment for several years. In order
to compliment the ongoing commitment to the R & D it has become
neccessary to construct a fully automated observatory at a dark
sky location. The existing Grove Creek Observatory complex enables
access to clear dark skies with excellent seeing conditions. The
new observatory will compliment and enhance the existing
observatories, buildings and telescopes at GCO.
An 18inch f4.5 catadioptic automated telescope and automated
roll-off roof obsevatory are presently under construction at the
Anssen Technologies factory in Sydney, Australia. Further new
telescopes are planned for the near future.
