Institute for Astronomy:
Mauna Kea (cont.)
Good site, well managed
tremendously successful
observatories
but,
- ORGANIZATION NOT SET UP TO
SERVE THE ENTIRE
ASTRONOMICAL COMMUNITY!
- less constrained resources compared to South
Pole
    (people, power, equipment, access, . .)
- state supported, not federal
- more forgiving environment - continuity less
important
- site characterization, techniques, instruments
left to individual observatories
