The 1.5-meter telescope housed in the University of the Free State’s Boyden Observatory in South Africa. App State professor emeritus and astrophysicist Dr. Richard Gray designed and built a spectrograph for the telescope, which he installed and commissioned this spring. This work, supported by Gray’s 2019–20 Fulbright award, began in fall 2019 and was put on hold in 2020 due to the global pandemic. Photo provided by Dr. Richard Gray
