SkyMapper Back On-Sky!
After six weeks of self-isolation, SkyMapper is back to taking images tonight!
Thanks to the efforts of the staff at Siding Spring Observatory, SkyMapper and other facilities are starting to resume science operations. We feel fortunate that our fully robotic telescope can continue collecting data for the SkyMapper Southern Survey, and hope that other observatories around the world can soon resume their own operations while safeguarding the wellbeing of their most valuable resource: the people who keep the facilities working at the cutting edge of science.
