The Arts and Entertainment Magazine & THE EERIE DIGEST has been very fortunate to obtain many articles for our SCIENCE section from George Mason University in Virginia. We had visited there often to attend meetings of the Northern Virginia Astronomy Club (NOVAC) and many of the schools professors have contributed articles for our various science series.
Professor Harold Geller has contributed much to us to pass along to the many science students who follow our magazines to enhance their own careers. His knowledge of astronomy is extensive and he had let our publication visit the school’s telescope observatory to get a first hand look at the equipment that has made the university outstanding.
Recently Professor Geller passed along two videos showing the construction of the telescope observatory and we decided to use them for this article. You can see how it was assembled by clicking on here :
The construction and installation of this huge telescope is extremely interesting and it is the envy of many schools. We hope that you enjoy watching them and we are sure that you will find them as fascinating as we did.
