New vines & a new CGH

Another week, another season in the Hex River Valley! Spring has sprung & now summer's well on its way - the vines are already looking spectacular :)

Hopes of installing the new M4 mount later this week were dashed by the discovery of a subtle slip-up by the manufacturers... Luckily this can be overcome by modifying smaller parts of the assembly so James & Craig returned to Cape Town to work on that.

In the meantime, an eagerly anticipated parcel arrived from Siberia: our huge, new CGH! It's another work of art, made more beautiful by the fact that (unlike its baby brother) it was born with a cross-hair to mark its centre...

By far the most elegant pieces of "hardware" in this entire project!
