Hamilton Trillium Grant

In 2003, the Trillium Foundation awarded the Hamilton Centre with approximately $75,000 to go toward the purchase of advanced equipment to do public outreach and amateur research. This resulted in the installation of an advanced 16 Richey-Chretien telescope on a Software Bisque Paramount and an SBIG STL-11000M CCD Camera, as well as the purchase of a portable colour projector for presentations, and some related items.
