Come meet the new stewards of the former Adrian Training School property - PlaneWave Instruments! 

PlaneWave designs and manufactures astrograph telescopes for portable use as well as permanent installations. PlaneWave Instruments was founded in 2006 by Richard Hedrick and Joseph Haberman, and is currently operated in Rancho Dominguez, CA.

PlaneWave partner Meridian Mechatronics was founded in 2009 by Kevin Iott in Deerfield, MI to do manufacturing for PlaneWave. Together PlaneWave Instruments and Meridian Mechatronics will be consolidating and expanding their operations at the Adrian Training School properly. They envision a campus that hosts manufacturing, distribution, and assembly facilities, as well as their headquarters’ offices and an observatory.

PlaneWave Instruments is committed to providing the highest quality observatory-class products for astronomers. Check out their website at:
