Allegheny Observatory - Machine Shop etc. - Al-Paslow
This hand drawn image & also the one on of Jupiter is of great interest to me. it is an original & was sketched by James Keeler on Jan 7, 1888 while using the 36 inch refractor at Mt Hamilton in California.
Keeler of course was a Director at Allegheny Observatory, and  was the first person to discover the rings of Saturn were made from particles, and was not a solid. The sketch was made while Keeler was at Lick Observatory, and was brought to Allegheny. They have since been remounted and a more modern frame added to enhance the beauty of Keeler's artwork - Information verified by Art Glasser - Sept 2009.
