Galileoscope Segment on KUAT

Our local pubic television station had a five minute segment on Arizona Illustrated this week.  I am not on camera, but I was the “set designer” for the segments that took place at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory.   If you look close, you can see my Saturn pic I took through the Galileoscope on one of the computer screens in the background.  You also get a glimpse of Photon Engineering, the firm that did most of the optical design.

Unfortunately, KUAT’s embedding code doesn’t work on WordPress, so you can watch it by clicking here.

Enjoy.
