In spring of 2009, the Antique Telescope Society visited the Detroit Observatory in Ann Arbor.  In honor of their visit, the meridian telescope was turned around for the first time in several decades.  Video of the event is at http://www-personal.umich.edu/~aquilla/meridian.mov ( Apparently, I can’t embed video here…)

The video was taken with a cell phone, so so it is small, and the sound quality is terrible.
