        wow, had no idea Lowell had a 4.2m. We hardly ever hear anything out of Lowell except sometimes visitors get to use the Clark 24" if they pay enough. I didn't know Lowell had the funding for such a huge scope.    -Jason

        At Lowell, Brian has logged over 3 decades on a 21 inch Classical
        Cassegrain making photometric measurements of stars, planets and the
        Galilean moons. I'm not surprised that he would use a quality apo for
        visual work in the Flagstaff area because of the seeing issues.
        Fortunately, the site of Lowell's new 4.2M Telescope is consistently
        better (median ~ 0.85").
