In my former Paper, I have given the changes which have happened in the situation of six double stars. When the causes of these observed changes in the double star Castor were investigated, I had recourse to the most authentic observations I could find, of the motions in right-ascension and polar distance of this star. But the Tables which have been lately published, in the last volume of the observations made by the Astronomer Royal at Greenwich, give us now the proper motions of 36 principal… 

Beyond the planets: early nineteenth-century studies of double stars

In 1837 the German-born astronomer F. G. W. Struve published his famous catalogue of double stars. For Struve this was the culmination of 12 years' detailed observation of a class of celestial

Long-term photometry of Herbig Ae/Be stars in the Strömgren system.

aration is an average of 4 measures of the double distance. It is possible now, after nearly four years and seven observing missions at La Silla, to make the first conclusions on the work done.

JOHN MICHELL, THE PLEIADES, AND ODDS OF 496,000 TO 1

John Michell, M.A., B.D., F.R.S. (1724-1793), was the first scientist to apply statistics to the spatial distribution of the stars on the celestial sphere. He was the first to realise that certain

SUMMARY An assessment is given of John Herschel's overall contributions to nineteenth century astronomy. John Herschel built on his pioneering father William Herschel's foundations, with revisions

La Distance des Etoiles au dix-huitième Siècle: L'Echelle des Magnitudes de John Michell

Abstract En dépit de la difficulté présentée par les mesures d'éclat, John Michell construisit au dix-huitième siècle une échelle de magnitude étonnante de précision et de rigueur. Mais il n'indique
