I recognize that La Palma isn’t an ideal site right now but the eruption will be over long before any kind of decision is made.

Kevin Hills runs a robotic observatory with a 0.5m Newtonian astrograph on my land. He has used it to do some very good science.

Between his dome and mine is a concrete pad with power and ethernet supplied to it. A few years ago a European university ran a robotic observatory from there.

or search for “Tacande Observatory”.
