On September 14, 2001, Susan and I had the pleasure of being invited to go with the OPTAS astronomy club to Mount Wilson for a night of observing through the 60" telescope and the 16" Meade scope next door. I was even able to do some prime focus imaging through the 60"!

We were able to tour the area and check out the 100" scope.

The 60" scope in use.

Scott, is this a 4" eyepiece or a ship's porthole?
