Glad you like it. When I made the first post I hadn’t seen the Yerkes refrator clip. Modern telescopes might be technological marvels but they’re not ‘proper’ telescopes in my book.There are a couple of clips of the amazing Treptow refractor as well, must have been a remarkable thing to see in the flesh.Some of the recommendations in the side bars are good as well. I particularly liked ‘Aimng high’ from 1957 ( on the early Soviet space flights. There is some what even then must have archive footage of Tsiolkovsky and the commentary is just priceless.
