This telescope is older than 120 years! Now it serves only for excursions, 'cause the observatory has new, modern equipment with all that digital jazz going on. But this one, old and cute, is the part of astronomic history. With this telescope one of the scientist was able to come to the conclusion that Jupiter, like Saturn, has rings too. Later this theory was proven right by Voyager flyby mission)))
Well, actually I've had a great week-end, thantks to my friend and nice warm weather. I'll post some pictures later, but now I just want to curl under the blanket with a cup of hot green tea and few pretty tasty apples, and to read the book I've bought yesterday on the International Book Fair (I've also bought 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson - I've seen the movie and now can't wait to read the book))).
Have a nice Sunday (mine is almost over, but I know that in some countries it's just starting)))
