  1. Lick observatory s.jpg
    Way back in about 1960, when I was high school student, I took a tour of the Lick Observatory. Here we are looking at the rings of Saturn in daylight through the historic Alvin Clark 36 inch refractor. Probably taken with my Argus C3.

  11. I used this as a guide scope when imaging and a wide-field scope for imaging and visual. William certainly knows how to build beautiful telescopes.
