Thanks David – there are some cracking items there. My favourites are George Cole’s 14 inch (in 1942) and 18 inch (in 1949) telescopes, and the the 40 inch refractor at Yerkes.Only downside is that annoying Gordon Gin trailer that precedes some items.Go well!Jeremy
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 (www.britishpathe.com/record.php?id=34881) on the early Soviet space flights. There is some what even then must have archive footage of Tsiolkovsky and the commentary is just priceless.
