Really nice clip with the Shoemakers and David Levy at Palomar. They found the famous comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 that smashed into Jupiter with the 18" Schmidt that also appears in the clip.

@cometman Very cool look at how this used to be done. Fun to watch them talk about some of most significant discoveries ever made.
