The purpose of this note is to bring the community up to date on this project. The telescope will be used as a teaching facility as a part of the NASA Space Science grant to NC A&T. Because the telescope is designed to operate automatically under the control of operators accessing it via the internet it will seldom have visitors at the site (except for construction, routine maintenance and repairs).
