It has featured in the last few minutes on the BBC National News. They said it has cost about £450,000 to build.

As ever though the report gives the impression that visual observations can produce the same clarity and colour of astro photographs.

Hopefully the industrial action at Grange Mouth will not affect visitors to this event.
