Stars and artists are somehow linked in an un-explainable manner.
And here at the Kitt Peak Observatory in Arizona AZooNY gathers
creative forces and contemplates our small existence in the big
world around us.
Kitt Peak Radio Antenna Looking for long lost AZooNY relatives in all the right places...
A nice collection of schools. We bet arranging who pays for the holiday
party is a bear!
One can see farther from this vantage point than anyone should normally
be able to see.
The main telescope at
Kit Peak is the Mayall, a 4 meter giant. A Cassegrain type
scope, which means the main mirror focus images of AZooNY's hat into a smaller
mirror, which reflects it back and through a hole in the center of the main
mirror. Now why all the detail? Because that "hole"
in the main mirror is this donut center-like object in the photo.
Yes, it's a bigg'n hunk of glass.
Ritchey Chretien 20 inch
Here's the RC Optical Ritchey Chretien scope resting before a big night,
hat at the controls. The hat kept slewing the scope to view passing
heads... what's up with that?
