Image taken 18th January 1973.

Merv Jones, lunar observer and artist, comet discoverer, and author of the calendar illustration which I posted, originally used a 4" refractor and later this 10 inch reflector, protected by a roll off shed, which was a converted surplus outhouse, no longer being required once a residential area had been sewered. (This one was put to a very practical use.)  Shortly after that I lost touch with Merv.
