MADISON (NBC15) Astronomy researchers will have their heads in the stars… thanks to some hard work by some UW experts.

The half ton, $5 million device will sit ten stories above the primary mirror of what will become the largest telescope in the southern hemisphere.
Next stop for the spectrograph... the Kalahari Desert.
