My wife and I visited Roque de los Muchachos Observatory on La Palma last year. I took the opportunity to take a number of photos of the Isaac Newton Telescope (INT). This shows the primary 100 inch mirror. The INT is the only equatorially-mounted scope at Roque de los Muchachos, all others being alt-azimuth.
