A typical day for Professor David
||Inside the dome, the telescope that is used (the middle
one) is fixed with
two other telescopes to an equatorial table. This table turns around
two axes, to follow
the relative movement of the Sun in the sky with respect to our
position on Earth. The
table can be manipulated manually or mechanically. This allows Professor David to properly
point the telescope towards the spot of the sky that he aims for.
The telescope is a refractor with an objective lense diameter of 150 mm
and a focal length
of 2400 mm.
