Keck 2 Telescope to Shut Down for 3 Nights for Repairs

I just read on Andrew Coopers blog, that Heavy Maintenance is being done up at the Keck Observatory a top Mauna Kea and that..

…The observatory is having to expend additional time and money replacing older systems and equipment. At the same time there is the opportunity to upgrade equipment with modern technology for improved performance and even energy savings…

…For a total of three nights the telescope will be off-sky, shut down to allow the needed work…

I appreciate Andrews Blog, even though I don’t understand a lot of it.  It’s nice to have someone at the top of the world writing about things from there.
