Palomar in Ads - III

I have posted a few print ads here, now it is time for some video.

It is a wonderful new world of Fords! From 1960 I give you the Falcon, the Thunderbird and the Galaxy. All sold to you using a model of the Hale Telescope and Dome.

Ah yes, I remember the days when we used to have those elegant, formal affairs at the Observatory.

Check out the telescope on the cover of this 1955 book about Aluminum at Disneyland:

So the telescope is made of aluminum?

Wow, that Disney book on aluminum is pretty cool, but I don't think that is a Palomar telescope on the cover.

Telescopes mirrors are coated with aluminum.
