This is the place for discussing the process of building a PANOPTES Robotic Telescope, and for sharing your progress. NEW BUILDERS: Please post about your plans before you purchase parts so that we can advise you on any changes that may not have been published yet. We encourage each builder/build team to create a topic to which you’ll post updates on your progress; for example, Build thread for ‘Cloudy’. And everybody, please keep our community strong: be polite and support each other.
