On this night Ainslie employed his 9-inch silvered reflector, on an altazimuth stand, up to one hour past local midnight (x180, x270 and x400) and then used an equatorially mounted 81/2-inch (216mm) reflector by Calver (x170 and x250) which he seemed to possess at that time.
With the excitement of the eclipse now ended Ainslie returned to matters of telescopes and instruments and eight months after the eclipse, at the 1928 March 28 meeting, (54) Mr Sellers read his paper entitled 'A portable Altazimuth mounting', which of course was of great interest to Ainslie.
But when one understands the difficulties to be overcome, I think that it may be said that Mr Sellers has made a great advance in altazimuth mountings.
There is a plaque on the tube to testify to this, and that instrument was originally tripod mounted as an altazimuth system, only being converted onto a modern equatorial mount in the 1970s.
However that surviving refractor is a portable altazimuth instrument and not the heavy, equatorially mounted, Cooke refractor used to discover the 1933 White Spot on Saturn.
