JANUARY 1976 V. 51 Nº 1 Cover: Still the world´s second largert reflactor, the 36-inch at Lick Observatory on Mount Hamilton, California, has been in steady use since 1888. Its objective by Alvan Clark and Sons has a focal length of 57.8 feet. In this view, a filar micrometer for measuring double stars is attached at the eye end of the Steel tube, near the large ring by which an observer can set the telescope by hand on a selected object. With its 6-inch finder, the instrument rides on a German-type equatorial mounting, whose center of montion is 37 feet above the base of the iron pier. Note the perforated ribs of the dome, which is 70 feet in diameter. Dennis Milon took this photograph for Sky and Telescope in August, 1975. - AN INSIDE LOOK AT NASA PLANETOLOGY – Stephen E.

At the top of the picture, a bright chain encircles the junction of the telescope tube and a secondary-support cage for the Newtonian, Cassegrain, or coude observing positions. Here the coude arrangement is in use, with a round tertiary mirror seen inside the tube between the yoke arms sending light southward down the polar axis, giving a 250-foot effective focal length. Partway up the tube five Brown rings form a catwalk for hooking up the Newtonian controls. On the left (west) yoke arm is a declination-driving motor, and outside each arm is a long tube that contains 1,100-pound weights for counterbalancing the secondary cages. The housing at the bottom hides the 17-foot right-ascension driving wheel. At extreme left, a red crane is used to raise equipment from ground level to the observing floor. Photographed for Sky and Telescope in 1972, by Dennis Milon. - NOVEMBER´S LUNAR ECLIPSE: AN ANALYSIS - THE ECLIPSE IN COLOR - A NEW LOOK AT THE HUBBLE DIAGRAM – Kenneth R. Lang and George S.

Note the straight, narrow gas tail, blue in color, rising nearly vertically from the brilliant head: the broad, curved dust tail, of a pearly hue, leans to the north. The bright orange star to the left of the comet is Epsilon Pegasi (Enif). The two-minute exposure with a 58-mm. lens at f/2 was made on Fujichrome film, force processed to ASA 400. - A ROUNDUP OF OBSERVATORIES BY AMATEURS - QUADRANTID METEORS FROM 41,000 FEET – Peter M.

At top left, the arrow indicates north. Near the bottom, the blue waters of Bass Strait are partially covered by cloads, and two large embayments, Port Phillip Bay and Western Port, are at left and right of center, respectively. The grayish area along the top (northern) edge of Port Phillip Bay is the city of totality. At the end of the bay´s western extension is the small city of Geelong. The high-resolution 70-mm. Hasselblad image shows few clouds, a typical situation during the Australian summer. Weather probabilities at eclipse time are discussed on pages 300 and 327. - OCTOBER´S TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IN AUSTRALIA – J. B. Trainor - THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PLANET MERCURY – William K.

Other views, showing more Windows, are on pages 375 and 376, illustrating the articles on archaeoastronomy. - ASTRONOMY IN THE ANCIENT AMERICAS – Robert D.

The two-part spacecraft was scheduled to entera n orbit around Mars on June 19th, with separation and landing to occur on the afternoon of July 4th. Once on the suface of Mars, the lander will conduct a variety of investigations that include three for life. Some two months later, a second orbiter-lander pair will arrive in the vicinity of Mars for a planned landing on September 4th.The Vilking Project is managed by NASA´s Langley Research Center. Details of the misión are found in the article beginning on page 4. NASA illustration. - VIKING AND MARS: A PRELUDE - COMET D´ARREST APPROACHES THE EARTH – Brian G. Marsden and John E.

This Winter, the solar-energy equipment seen in the foreground will provide as much as 150000 BTU per day to heat the observer´s working quaters (two floors below the observing level) and a darkroom. The triangular enclosures contain two three-ton piles of rock for storing heat colected from sunlight by two arrays. The one at left uses open-end aluminum soft-drink cans, the one right black-painted corrugated iron absorb solar radiation. Fans circulate the heated air within the enclosures and to the building as needed. Lowell Observatory photograph by Suart Jones. - SOLAR HEATING AT AN OBSERVATORY – John S.

Best (seen in foreground) is set on a 22-foot-nigh tower that formerly supported a 5,000-gallon water tank. As the water load was over 22 tons, the rigid tower easily supports the present telescope and observatory. Vibrations of the instrument damp out very quickly. Photograph by John R.

Irwin, visiting astronomer from kean College of New Jersey. Located in the Chilean Andes on 8,235-foot-high Cerro Las Campanas, this will be the fourth largest telescope in the Southern Hemisphere. Its formal dedication takes place on October 5th and 6th. Erected by the Carnegie Institution of Washington and operated by astronomers from the Hale Observatories in California, this instrument was described in Sky and Telescope for March, 1971, page 131, and January, 1974, pages 13-15. - NUCLEAR AND DIFFERENTIATED ABUNDANCE PATTERNS – I – Charles R.

New Mexico. The scence shows five 82-foot antennas in their positions at the beginning of August, four of them at observing stations and one on the outfitting pad at letf. In the foreground are large trailers that housed the operations computer at that time.

Roger W. Sinnott photographed this koala three days later, on the road up to Siding Spring Observatory in New South Wales, where the partial eclipse had been 84 percent. The picture of totality, showing the corona´s short polar plumes, was taken by Jeffrey and Christine Seckold with a 6-inch Newtonian telescope; the exposure was about one second on liford Pan F black-and-white film. - VIKINGS REST DURING MARS´ CONJUNCTION - GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY OF HUBBLE´S CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM – Sidney van den Bergh - WESTERN AMATEURS MEET IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA – Peggy Townsend - ASTRONOMICAL NOTES FROM GRENOBLE – John B.
