The telescope and Dr. Harold Corwin Coming up on the 72-inch telescope from behind with meridian post (and explanation marker) in the path, exhibition rotunda in the background. The castle is just barely visible behind the tree at the left.
Zoom in on telescope and meridian post. Machinery pit is fenced to the left of the telescope. The castle seen from the meridian post. Distance is 200-300 meters at a guess.
