Thanks, Dave. I made the same trek in 2010. Your excellent trip report brought back memories of that trip. Wouldn't it be cool if you got to go "behind the glass?"

I was semi-obsessed with this beautiful machine in my childhood.

Thank you for the tour I've always wanted to take!!!

The dome is perfection exemplified.

Your visit sounds extremely similar to mine a couple of years back. I even have most of the same photos! The roads up to Mt Palomar and Mt Wilson are NOTHING compared to the highway up to Mt Hamilton (Lick Observatory). THAT is one scary road

Thanks for sharing, Dave - brings back fond memories!

Dave, yet another thank you for such a marvelous tour of a fantastic Observatory! For those of us that will never be able to see them ourselves; your photo tours have been a wonderful experience for us!

Dave, Thanks for that wonderful show. A big hit of nostalgia for me since I was raised in Oceanside and our schools would often offer field trips to Palomar---that would have been in the 1950s. It certainly kindled my interest in the skies, but my little cardboard refractor suffered a bit in comparison.

Enjoy the night sky.
