Lick Observatory teaser
Just got back from an all day field trip to the Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton above San Jose. Got the whole backstage tour, which culminated with my bloodshot, leering eyeball on the business end of a 36-inch refractor (that's 36 inches in diameter for you telescope n00bs). Tell you all about it later.
Hat tip to Darren for the concept of the teaser post.
