    Default Alvan Clark 8 inches at Quebec city



    I all !

    In 1980, some members and I of the astronomy club SAREL at Québec City found a
    refractor Alvan Clark 8 inches in the basement of « Collège des Jésuites ».
    This scope was used by Commander Ashe and son first and Professor Arthur Smith
    at the Québec City Astronomical Observatory, beetween 1864-1930. So, we
    renovated the instrument in 1980. In 1982, we installed the scope at the Museum
    of Laval University. I put some photos and article on the web. Sorry, it's in
    french for now.
