In 1938, while at Princeton New Jersey, he used a 89 mm/ 150 mm brass refractor, which was donated to the Chabot Science Center in Oakland, California - USA. In 1954, his 200 mm/ 1600 mm Newtonian reflector (built by Zvi Gezari) was donated to Ben Shemen. In 1962 it went to the Williams Planetarium in Jerusalem and later to the Meyerhoff Youth center in Jerusalem - Israel.

..and between the article on Black Holes, and on our latest 'Super Meteor,' there is a lot there to like! Many other gems tucked inside that I did not mention of course, no slight intended.
The only thing I take issue with is the advertisement forcing me to gaze at those gorgeous globes. I want them all, but must abstain. I have already blown my budget and then some! Such color-coded topographical goodness:nonono: (It's a good thing they had the Mars topo map on clearance to help assuage my suffering some. It's incredible in its own right, I'll post about it later)
Oh and Mr. PhilCo126 , that is some impressive sleuthing that you are doing there! Your scholarly research on the history of telescopes and modern astronomy is most thorough indeed, from what I have seen. I look forward to reading and seeing more of your investigations of our astronomical roots..
