Part of CALLING ALL STARS issue.
The world's largest telescope, at Radcliffe Observatory, Klapper Kop, Pretoria, South Africa.
Various shots of observatory roof opening and a massive telescope slowly moving into position. We see Dr. Knox Shaw (sp.) on observer's platform. The platform lifts upwards to bring Dr. Shaw level with telescope's lens. More shots of various mechanical bits of telescope moving.
Note: some film damage and bit of spacing on mute neg.
