Edwin Hubble, earliest photo with a telescope
To entertain his young students, and perhaps in preparation for an evening of astronomical observations, Edwin Hubble brought a telescope and set it up in the circular driveway of John Robertsís home, near the Hubble family home in Louisville, Kentucky. This is the earliest photograph showing Hubble with a telescope. Photograph by John R. Roberts, courtesy AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives, Kielkopf Collection.
Donated by Dr. and Mrs. John F. Kielkopf with John R. Hale.
