Picture of the Week #52
The dome of the telescope on Painter Hall on the University of Texas campus.
This is the older of the two telescopes on our campus. The telescope dates to the 1930s and the lens is over 100 years old. The green color of the dome is from the patina on copper, like the Statue of Liberty.
