  SCFCC EXTRAVAGANZA!
  MT. WILSON "INSIDE" TELESCOPE TOUR

  A special "inside" tour of the Mt. Wilson telescope
facilities will be offered on September 15 right after the
SCFCC "Christmas Party" lunch at the Pavilion.

  To join the tour, be at the Mt. Wilson auditorium
(same location as the SCFCC business meeting) at 1:45 p.m.
Dr. Robert Jastrow, Director of the Mt. Wilson Institute, will
give a brief introduction followed by a synopsis of the new
telescope instruments and some neat results.  We will then
move as a group (or perhaps two groups) inside the 100" telescope
dome and then into the state-of-the-art CHARA beam combining
building where light from outlying telescopes is combined
in-phase.

  Watch Monday's CGC Communicator for any updated announcements.
The tour should be completed no later than 4 p.m.
