100 Inch Telescope at Mt. Wilson

I love the look of the mechanism. The rivets, the huge axle in the middle, all the wires. Then of course we do have the sheer history of the Mt Wilson Observatory. I used my Bogen "Magic Arm" to attach my camera to a rail near the viewing window. That let me use a longer exposure. Any flash would have just bounced off the glass.
