Violet's Trip to See Stars and Stellafane

HomePage 13, Arunah HillNext Page

We are at the Arunah Hill Days Star Party. Joe Zuraw says I can use the Fitz/Clark 13" refractor tonight when the stars come out. This telescope is over 150 years old, and the lens is twice as big, as I am tall. It is so big, you can bearly see me next to the eye piece. I am all excited until I find out Uncle Steve forgot to bring the objective lens, and it starts to pour cats, dogs, and boy scouts.
