Palomar History Photo of the Week - February 15, 2010

This week's Palomar Observatory History Photo of the Week comes from the Google LIFE Magazine image archive.

The photo, likely from late 1938, shows the early stages of construction of the 200-inch telescope at Palomar Observatory. There are a lot of Palomar photos in the on-line archive and more, with some overlap here. They include some great photos from the construction era and a lot of commissioning photos as the 200-inch and the 48-inch telescopes came into service in the late 1940s.
