Inauguration of a new telescope

Following a generous donation by the LMK foundation our new telescope was purchased and installed in the south-east dome.  Donors and senior astronomers were invited to a small inauguration ceremony where it was revealed that the telescope would be named "Anres Öga" (or 'the Eagle Eye') to honor professor emeritus Arne Ardeberg.
