Kitt Peak Observatory
and Hats

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.

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.

Large Telescope Mirror 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?
