Works involved the removal and replacement of the dome roof covering to the Allen telescope, electrical system upgrades to the observatory and complete refurbishment including new flooring, heating and a bespoke workstation.
The new metal dome was fabricated and shipped in from the USA and installed by specialist installers.
Works also included electrical works to the Radcliffe dome.
Both the Allen and Radcliffe telescopes had to remain in-situ throughout the works, necessitating careful wrapping and boxed protection.
