Prototype Preview

Last fall I had the opportunity to visit the 20-inch prototype of the 200-inch telescope. It used to reside at Caltech, but now is at the Eileen Collins Observatory at Corning Community College in New York.

I have had a couple of requests for info about this and am planning a big post on it soon, but in the meantime here is a very short teaser about it:

Thanks for the teaser of the 1:10 Hale prototype Scott. I finally know where that scope is. I hope to see it some time. Can't wait for your full report.
