Daily cosmobite: Harley Wood’s dome under construction

HWDomeunderconstructionHarley Wood’s dome has just returned to Sydney Observatory after a 28 years absence. It was built in 1952 to house the Melbourne astrograph, a photographic telescope. It is now part of our new East dome which sits on the same site as Wood’s original dome.
