While in California we took a trip to the Palomar Observatory, home to the venerable 200-inch (5.08 meter) Hale Telescope, which was the largest optical telescope in the world from 1949 to 1992 (when the first of the two identical Keck telescopes was built).
I forgot to get a picture of the telescope itself, but I remembered to at least get a picture of the dome:

Anyway, here's wishing you all a pleasant new year! A hui hou!
