(IAAC) FINAL CROSS-POST Re: Who's Afraid of Einstein's Cross



Here is one last item, from one of the people who actually made
this well-reported observation of the Gravitational Lens.
Again, if you respond to Al, be sure to place 'akelly@ghg.net'
manually in your "Cc:" line. And encourage him to join us on the
IAAC list, for future deep-sky observing threads of this kind!
Clear skies,

Several years ago at the TSP (either in 1989 or 1992) Barbara Wilson, Larry
Mitchell, Andy Saulietis and I all viewed "Huchra's Mirage" (popularly
called the Einstein Cross) with our 32" f4 at about 600X.  It was very
difficult and I remember seeing only three of the four "mirage" images.
