Our Observatory: an aerial perspective!

Ant's quad-copter's still providing superb entertainment up here!  With today being one of the most perfect days imaginable - he managed to sneak in morning, afternoon & sunset flights that yielded these Absolutely Stunning shots of the plateau & surrounds...

Note the little robotic Birmingham solar telescope on the left that's already hard at work! 
SALT's shadow visits the telescope's Operations Manager's house
SALT as you will not often see it!
Pity there wasn't anyone up on the catwalk or the tracker for scale...
The view towards the south in the late afternoon
A perfect night coming up - happily SALT has not missed many of those during the well-timed shut-down
A very busy hill-top in the middle of almost nowhere
