Photos and Tidbits


Lost and Found: Paul Mancuso brought a foucoult tester (made in the 1950's) to the January SJAA General Meeting. SJAA member (and one of the club founders) Walt Krumm made the tester, and Paul used it when testing his first mirror - a 6 inch f/5 high school project. Paul found the tester and some of Walt's calculations when cleaning out a closet recently. Photo by Jane Houston Jones

SJAA member Alex Crichton works with John Dobson to do final figuring on his 12.5" mirror. Alex participated in John's Fall 2000 classes at the California Academy of Sciences, and completed his mirror here at a "telescope finishing party" held by Jane Houston Jones and Morris Jones. Alex showed his completed 12.5" dobsonian at a recent January Houge Park star party. Photo by Morris Jones.
