Palomar History Photo of the Week - April 5, 2010

This week's Palomar Observatory History Photo of the Week shows the dome of the 200-inch telescope under construction.

The photo was taken October 18, 1937 by Lee A. Farnsworth, Jr, a member of the construction crew on Palomar.

Tonight at 7:30 p.m. I will be giving a talk on the building of the Hale Telescope for the Temecula Valley Astronomers.
