Workers from Frank Compo & Sons remove the Gregory-Maksutov Telescope from the observatory at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Stamford, Conn. Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022. The removal of the 1965 telescope is the first step in the Stamford Museum & Nature Center's plan to demolish the decommissioned observatory and begin construction on the new Planetarium & Astronomy Center. The old telescope is being transported to the Astronomical Lyceum, a historical telescope museum in New Mexico.
