The Uranian and Neptunian systems investigated with the 26-inch Equatorial of the United States Naval Observatory by Simon Newcomb( Book )

1 edition published in 1875 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The present paper contains the first extended discussion of observations with the 25-inch Equatorial which was mounted at the United States Naval Observatory. For the convenience of astronomers who may hereafter be engaged in researches of the satellites of Uranus and Neptune, tables of these objects are appended, whereby the apparent position of any satellite relative to the planet at any epoch within certain limits may be obtained in a few minutes. The frequency with which minute stars, which could not, from their aspect, be distinguished from satellites, were seen around the planet Uranus in the course of these observations rendered empherides of the positions of the satellites necessary to identify those objects with certainty
