On the Operating Table

On the Operating Table

Dismantling the 25" reflector is like a medical operation. The patient is laid out on a card table.. er operating table, the mirror hatch is lowered and the heart of the telescope, the huge 25" primary mirror, is carefully removed. Depending on the nature of the operation, the scope may be dismantled right down to its equatorial platform. The step shown here was an early stage of the successful procedures undertaken on the beautiful day of June 20, 2015.
