AAT -- another view


The 48-inch UK Schmidt Camera



In April, 1986 I visited Australia in order to photograph Comet Haley. I was fortunately granted space to set up my astrophotographic equipment on the observatory's grounds. The telescope in this photo is Tom Craig's (the then night attendent of the AAT) 12.5-inch Cave reflector.
