Why have we brought the largest telescope
in Wales to Knighton?


The aim of Project DRAX is to install and operate a 24 inch (61 cm) Schmidt Camera (it is the largest telescope in Wales) at the Spaceguard Centre to conduct a wide field sky survey to detect Near Earth Objects and other transient phenomena.

Pictures of the 24″ Schmidt Camera/Telescope Lift
that took place on Friday 19th June 2009 in Cambridge can be seen in the
Gallery under the title DRAX
