    The Naval Observatory held a wonderful (and rare) openhouse on Saturday.  I 
    got there at 3pm and stayed several hours.  After my hinting, a librarian 
    very kindly got their origial Bowditch out of the vault and drew quite a 
    crowd.  The 26", which includes the lens from the original observatory, was 
    open (and still in active use.)  They claim the oldest still in active 
    scientific use.  (Had a CCD camera hung on the back to study double star 
    motions. ((For navigation purposes of course.)) )
