Caption

A 90cm Cassegrain telescope at the Royal Observat- ory in Edinburgh, Scotland. The telescope, which is no longer in use, was installed in 1928; the manually-operated dome was inaugurated in 1894. This reflecting telescope was used for almost 50 years to obtain thousands of star spectra with the spectrograph seen at extreme bottom right. The Royal Observatory, Edinburgh, operates two of the world's major telescopes: the 3.8m UK Infrared Telescope (UKIRT) and the millimetre-wave James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT), both in Hawaii.
