The Evolution of Telescope Mounts

2 years 9 months ago #105677 by mjc
The evolution of telescope mounts leading to the acceptance of the German Equatorial Mount being the de-facto standard in astronomy.
This talk given at a CfA Colloquium in the last day (or so) is a nice history.

It's 1 hour 26 minutes - maybe a little dry (it's not juicy) - but there is really good historical information here. I recommend it.
