Klappentext

Excerpt from Astronomical Observations Made at the University Observatory, Oxford, Vol. 1

The record of the observations has been divided into four distinct parts. Part I contains three somewhat extensive series of observations of the Satellites of Saturn during the last three Oppositions of the planet, and it is confidently hoped that they may be of service to some astronomer who shall undertake a re-investigation of the orbits of the Satellites. The methods of observation adopted will be found detailed on page 2. Grateful acknowledgment is due to Mr. Albert Marth for the valuable and accurate ephemerides of the satellites which he has regularly supplied. It is not proposed at present to continue these observations.

Part II contains four hundred observations of double stars. For reasons shortly to be explained it is in future proposed to restrict the observations to a small and select number of stars only, but these few will be frequently observed, and with great care.

Part III contains a considerable series of observations of all the comets discovered in the year 1877. They were regularly observed at Oxford from the day of the first telegraphic intimation of their discovery until they disappeared from our view. Approximate elements of their several orbits were computed as soon as possible, and in most instances an ephemeris was communicated to astronomers possessing adequate means of observation.
