CONTENTS Vol. XIX, Nº 4 FEBRUARY, 1960 COVER: The 36-inch reflector of Leiden Observatory’s southern station near Pretoria, SOUTH Africa. It has a spherical primary mirror with a Cassegranian-type secondary, and is designed to provide rapid automatic photoelectric measurements of stars in five different colors. For this, five photomultiplier tubes are used simultaneously in the spectrograph.

Chamberlain explains to two young visitors the features of the projector, which replaces the one that was used almost daily for 25 years. The original skyline of Central Park, cut out at the base of the planetarium dome, has been eliminated. The instrument was demonstrated to the public for the first time on January 30th, with a program entitlet, New Skies for New York Photograph by Myles J. Adler.

Hamilton, a 4,200-foot peak east of San José, the city in the valley in the picture’s upper part. In the center is the observatory’s main building, with the large dome of the 36-inch refractor at the left end and the 12-inch telescope at the other. Another early instrument is the 36-inch Crossley reflector, its dome seen about three-quarters of an inch from the left edge of the picture. The most recently built instruments are in the lower right, dominated by the dome of the 120-inch reflector. Two inches from the right edge is the 20-inch Carnegie astrograph, while the 22-inch Tauchmann reflector is on a small hill just halfway between the 20-inch and the 36-inch refractor.

The entire installation including the dome and the classroom, rests on a 66-foat platform of heavily Reinforced concrete which is supported by a steel girder and a concrete pillar. Its unique swinging dome presents the whole night sky to the visitor, so that he may tell the whereabouts in the heavens of the object he is viewing through the telescope.
