I asked someone today at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona FL, "How are they going to isolate the new 1 meter telescope from the building?" (it being up high in a new multi-level building), and the guy points out the window at the object appearing in the image below. This is the tower they are mounting the telescope on; I wonder what the HOA and wife would think? :lol:

Does Astronomics carry those? I'd like to have one, installed of course. No HOA or wife here so I'm golden, no?

They should have talked to us first. We could have saved them a lot of money if they had made it out of cinder blocks.
