The great use of Double Stars having been already pointed out in a former paper, on the Parallax of the fixed Stars, and in a latter one, on the Motion of the Solar System, I have now drawn up a second collection of 434 more, which I have found out since the first was delivered. The happy opportunity of giving all my time to the pursuit of astronomy, which it has pleased the Royal Patron of this Society to furnish me with, has put it in my power to make the present collection much more perfect… 

Speckle observations with PISCO in Merate (Italy): XV. Astrometric measurements of visual binaries in 2014, and new orbits for ADS 671, 1615, 1709, 5447, 10075 and 12447.

We present relative astrometric measurements of visual binaries, made in 2014 with the speckle camera PISCO at the 102-cm Zeiss telescope of Brera Astronomical Observatory, in Merate. Our observing

Discovery of the first resolved triple white dwarf

We report the discovery of J1953–1019, the first resolved triple white dwarf system. The triplet consists of an inner white dwarf binary and a wider companion. Using Gaia DR2 photometry and

Gravitational-wave astronomy with compact binary coalescences : from blip glitches to the black hole area increase law

The beginning of gravitational-wave astronomy dates from the 14th of September 2015, when the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatories (LIGO) measured a gravitational wave for the first


Black holes are fundamental to our understanding of modern astrophysics, yet the origin of this concept can be traced back to the writings of England’s John Michell and France’s Pierre-Simon Laplace
