Abstract

The major activity organized by Commission 9 was IAU Colloquium 67, Instrumentation for Large Telescopes, held 8–10 Sept., 1981, on a portion of the observing floor of the 6 metre telescope of the Special Astrophysical Observatory, USSR. The cooling coils in the floor were turned off and a rug laid. The enormous BTA (Bolshoi Altazimuth Telescope) provided a spectacular back drop to the 88 participants. Between sessions, the particpants were shown every detail of the telescope by its Chief Designer, Dr. B. K. Ioannisiani, and SAO staff. Night observations continued: speckle interferometry.
