There are a couple places that use this phrase, which is a bit of an odd way of saying it's being used for scientific research. I'm going to change it. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:44, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Readability problems with section on 60-inch telescope
This section is concerned with the 60-inch telescope. Therefore I think we can remove the repeated text: 60-inch (1,500 mm) which is scattered throughout this section - it's repetitive and doesn't help readability. I would like to change this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by M62902 (talk • contribs) 11:45, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
I agree and have removed several conversions. I'm sure someone just did a search-and-replace. The common name of the telescope is the "60 inch" reflector or telescope (though it's also called the Hale telescope). Will Bebacktalk 12:31, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
