TELESCOPE FOR ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY OF DHARMARAJA COLLEGE (ASDRC) 

Celestron NexStar 6SE Telescope which was sent by DAANA to DRC Astronomical society has been arrived in Kandy and recently they tested out the equipment and shared few pictures with us. This will be handed over officially to DRC within the next few weeks. They are extremely happy with the outcome of the equipment.
