Caption: George Ellery Hale (1868-1938), US astronomer, using the spectrograph of the Snow Solar Telescope. Hale moved this telescope from Yerkes Observatory to Mount Wilson Observatory in 1904. As an undergraduate, Hale had invented the spectroheliograph, a device used to study the Sun. He was the driving force behind some of the largest telescopes of the time, including those at the Yerkes and Mount Wilson observatories where he was director. He helped develop the California Institute of Technology into a major research centre. The Hale Telescope and the Hale Cycle of solar activity are named after him.
