One of the highlights of the Institute is having a chance to do visual observing with large telescopes. This year we had an incredible night of observing using the Mt. Wilson 100″ telescope, where we looked at Jupiter, Saturn, the Globular Cluster M13, the Ring Nebula, the Sombrero Galaxy and some binary stars. This was especially meaningful after our historical lesson in the morning at the Carnegie Observatory – where we saw the plates and instruments used by Hubble at the Mt. Wilson telescope. Below are some pictures.
