The 100-inch telescope inside its dome, Mount Wilson Observatory. Seen from the west, the tube is 20 degrees from horizontal pointing south, the shutter open to the north. The interior balcony surrounds the telescope and its pedestal and base. A curved ladder is seen arching over the telescope, at the far left. The interior walls of the curved dome are seen in the background.
