Subject: Buhl Siderostat Telescope


I strongly support your efforts to keep the 10-inch refractor telescope with its associated siderostat in the Buhl Planetarium Building. This telescope is in good functioning condition. It could be very useful in the program of the Children's Museum for education in astronomy and science in general. It is housed in a location which probably could not profitably be used for a different purpose.
