"The Journey to Palomar"


This is a wonderful documentary that will definitely appeal to SolderSmoke listeners.  Check out Jim Gunn working on the electronics for the CCD cameras that they attached to the 200 inch 'scope (described in Preston's "First Light").  


Once again, sorry if readers outside the U.S. have trouble with this link.  I hope you all can find other ways to see this video.

  1. I can also recommend a good book on the making of Palomar called "The Perfect Machine" by Ron Florence.
