Flickr Find: Haute-Provence Observatory

June 8, 2007 — Leave a comment

This is a lovely long-exposure photo where the telescope dome has been rotated to allow the shot to appear to show the whole scope. The 0.8m telescope is the Haute-Provence Observatory built in 1937 near the current site of St.Michel l’Observatoire. I once went to see this place with my wife and her parents but it was closed on Wednesdays. I love france for its laid back approach but I do wish they could sort out their opening hours.
