Abstract

From a spinning furnace in Tucson, AZ, to a laboratory bench in Cambridge, MA, the components of the Whipple Observatory’s newest telescope are beginning to take form. Daniel Brocious of the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory discusses, in this Astronomy Report reprinted from Smithsonian Research Reports No. 54, Spring 1988, the 48-in. reflecting telescope and its new electronic light detectors and how, when operational, the telescope will give astronomers a better look at the universe than the 24-in. instrument it will replace.
