Solar Instruments
The 11-in reflector is mounted directly on the main tube of the 24-in telescope, made possible by the tube's especially heavy construction. The 11-in beam is inserted into the main optical path behind the 24-in primary and has full access to the same equipment (e.g,, the spectroheliograph) as the 24-in. It, too, is used for Zeeman magnetic field and Doppler field studies.
