    As usual, Craig gives a very informative and entertaining talk on observatories from around the world. Being instrumental in the design and building of many of these observatories gives Craig the advantage of making his audience feel as if they are sitting around the coffee room at work picking up the inside track on how the job is done. It is a unique experience that you do not get from watching TV specails on the same subject. I am looking forward to the tour of Craig's new facility.
