Found a gem...

I found this gem while watching our 1.8-m mirror get re-aluminized a week or so ago. This photo is taken from one of my favorite spots to take pictures of our 36 inch on Kitt Peak but it was taken in the 1960s before the 4-meter Mayall telescope and the Steward Observatory 90 inch telescope were built. You can see the site testing towers for the 4-meter on the summit of Kitt Peak behind our 36 inch prior to its construction. Click on this link to see one of my images from that location.
