Hmm, looks like the API broke so I'm doing this manually in the Blog editor. (OMG! ;-) )
Unusual summer in that most are quiet around CDL. We're usually spending a lot of time with our families, around the house and vacationing. This year we've done a few things in the lab also! We have a few new members and they've been visiting all summer. We've spent time getting the Lulzbot 3D printer working. Still need to get some glass and buildtac to address the huge scratch in the bed. We do have a few other 3D printers we're working on (Monoprice Mini, Tarantula, a delta and a home made RepRap clone we're going to run Klipper). The CNC machine has been a bit neglected but I'm hoping to resolve that later in the fall. We've been doing a lot of work on the InfoAge network. Improving Internet access and WiFi. Work on Security (cameras) and most exciting the CDL Meade LX200 12 " Telescope. We've improved how we move it about and we have a "crash cart" for the telescope. We're going to get a large battery (LFP) so we can power the scope and support longer. I'll be working on documenting what we've done and post pictures a bit later. Of course, More to come!
