February 9, 1999. The electric door opener is installed and working. The skirting is on. On the dome you can see some discoloration from having to cut on the backside of the door with a plasma cutter, for clearance. One of the final things to do before the observatory is operational, is to mount the tracks (background) that the door will slide open on. The dome is hand rotatable, but an electric motor will be installed. As usual I've painted myself into a corner and must now figure out how to get to the top of the dome on the outside to weld the tracks on.
