100-inch Telescope Model Closeout

Reserve Yours Now!

Expert telescope miniaturist Barry Crist fabricated models of the Mount Wilson 100-inch telescope in 2011 which quickly sold out. He now has available a final batch of ten, and Mr. Crist has no plans for another issue of either the 60-inch or 100-inch miniatures, both of which are constructed to the same scale. As you can see from the photo below, the enormous 100-inch looms large over its smaller sibling! The cost of the 100-inch model is $210, including shipping and handling. Additional charges will apply for shipment outside the U.S.

In order to obtain one of the forthcoming 100-inch telescope miniatures, please send an email request and a model will be reserved in your name. All proceeds from the model sales go towards the Second Century Campaign for Mount Wilson Observatory.
