24" Boller and Chivens cassegrain telescope

This telescope, a classic Boller and Chivens, is about 25 years old, and has a 24" mirror. The telescope
not only has a motor drive that balances the Earth's rotation, to allow for tracking of celestial objects over time but also has motors to turn the dome, raise and lower the dome shutter, and move the telescope in both axes.
