An "Engineering" Tour of Mt. Wilson Observatory...

In a dome of its own, a 6" Brashear Refractor.
I had the honor of using this telescope in 1953.

That's me and the 60" dome.

The "venerable" 60" telescope on fork mount.

That's Linda and me at the 100" dome.

Yours truly and the 100" telescope.

The 100" Hooker telescope dedicated in 1917.

Inside the 150-solar tower.

Does anyone use "setting circles" anymore???!!

The 150' and 75' solar towers.
