Talk on Palomar

On Saturday March 13 at 11:00 a.m. I will be speaking at the San Diego Archaeological Center on the construction of Palomar's 200-inch telescope. I gave the talk last November, but since then we have had many new images come our way. The net result is that this time around I will be showing off many images that most people have never seen.

As an example of a nice shot, that likely will not make the final cut for my talk, here is a picture taken by Lee A. Farnsworth, Jr. that was scanned just yesterday:

Written on the back of the print; "Oct. 18, 1937 East side 200" dome." My problem in preparing my talk is that I have too much material.

We have many more pictures and the scanning continues.
