    (Perhaps a bit OT for SeeSat.)
    
    Belatedly following up on the postings concerning a 28-channel adaptive
    optics satellite imaging station in Russia, I did some research this
    past weekend and found that the modest instrument currently there is
    only the first step. The next, with a 3-meter telescope and,
    presumably, an AO compensator with more channels, seems to be under
    construction with operational capability intended for 2010.
    
    The information(*) that has so far come to light has been aggregated
    into a sourcebook, now at

    (*) Mostly in Russian.
