I have always heard that it is good to have friends in high places. I don't suppose this is what is meant by that though.
Here's two members of the Palomar Observatory Mountain Operations day crew (Bruce and Drew) working on the dome shutters for the 60-inch telescope. As you look at the photo above you may have a hard time seeing them. Take a look at the cropped version below. Can you see both of them?
It was time to once again inspect, scrape and grease the rails that the dome shutters ride on. Its a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it.
