    It sounds amazing from the details though it won't be ready for several years yet. Another new telescope is always good but there is so much information coming in from astronomy nowadays and an ever smaller amount of it is being checked. Even in Clive Tombaugh's day (1930) this was a problem as he was checking someone else's old plates when he found Pluto.
