Abstract: I will provide an update about the Huntsman telescope, which will use off-the-shelf Canon lenses to see some of the faintest galactic structures ever seen before. I'll motivate the design of the telescope and describe some of the commissioning efforts underway. I'll also share some information about a new space telescope mission, named SkyHopper.
