Abstract: Exhaustive observation tests have been made and detected problems have been confronted by Zeiss. Test observations with the already installed equipment (imaging CCD and ATS spectrometer) have been performed successfully and the commissioning of both instruments is finished. Preliminary tests with the MES-AT spectrometer have been made and commissioning of this instrument is expected within 2010. Further infrastructure at Helmos Observatory (i.e. DIMM telescope, fiber optics and expansion of the existing control room and guest house) is presented.
