Thanks for sharing that link Tony …. reading it makes me want a physical copy to join such books as Ouse’s Silent Tide by C.F. Farrar and Amateur Astronomer’s Handbook & Observational Astronomy for Amateurs by J.B. Sidgwick, Thanks to Martin too for the Video link , Yes I still enjoy Will’s films too 🙂
Thank you Martin and the Will Hay Appreciation Society. I particularly enjoyed the the motor and belt driving the RA axis of the 1.5 ton 12.2 inch reflector. From an age when all things mechanical started with an unguarded rotating cylinder and belt, this is one belt I wouldn’t have minded standing next to when it snapped.
