Mill Hill Observatory (998), Hendon, North London

The domes at Mill Hill Observatory in October 2002. The nearer dome on the right contains a 24" Ritchey-Chretien and behind that is the Radcliffe dome containing twin refractors, an 18" refractor for visual observing combined with a 24" refractor now used for CCD imaging (see below). In the three smaller domes to the left are an 8" Fry refractor and some LX200's.

The twin refractors of the Radcliffe telescope

The X-Y measuring machine (below) was located on the ground floor of the white building to the right during 1976 - 1985.

 

The X-Y measuring machine in 2002, made by The Precision Tool & Instrument Co. Ltd, Thornton Heath, used to measure astrometric positions from negatives in the late 1970's and early 80's.

This picture from Autumn 1977, courtesy of Robin Scagell was taken while I was measuring images from Brian Manning of C/1977 R1 Comet Kohler = 1977m. (My hair is a bit shorter these days!)
