Bob,

 

Correction:

In the Buhl History Memo I sent you on February 23,

where I mention that the telescope-making classes were

in the "Amateur Astronomers’ Laboratory" at the

eastern end of Bowdish Gallery (then called South

Gallery), the title of the facility was really called

"Amateur Astronomers’ Workshop."

 

Addendum:

I thought you might also be interested in reading the

story of how we stopped The Carnegie Science Center

from selling-off the historic Zeiss Projector and

Siderostat Telescope in 1995. Actually, I already have

this story on my web site, which you can access at:
