F-Scope
We now have a brand new F-Scope, a Stellarvue SVQ100 F5.8 Astrograph to replace the C14. And a new imaging camera, a ZWO ASI1600MM Cool. The mount is an AP GTO900. It sits in the Toeller Observatory. Currently it's being tested and should be in operation within the next few months.  

G-Scope
We have seen great progress with the G-Scope which sits in the Z-Dome. The new AP GTO1600 is now mounted on top of the new bridge, telescope mounted, and we're starting to image.
