Caption: This shows the telescope working in the f/8 configuration. This optical system was only used with the Wide Field Photographic Plate Camera which is shown fitted below the mirror cell. To work at f/8, a large spherical secondary mirror was fitted and a corrector doublet lens mounted in the centre box section. A large sky baffle tube was also required and this can be seen in the images.
