The Sidereal Messenger, 1885, Vol. 4

Excerpt from The Sidereal Messenger, 1885, Vol. 4: A Monthly Review of Astronomy The neglect with which that branch of astronomy - the nebulae - has been treated, has been for many years, somewhat painfully apparent to me, though there are many reasons therefor. In the first place but very few persons possess suf ficient interest in this subject to arouse any popular eu thusiasm, and as telescopes of the largest size are necesse ry to see them at all, except a few of the brightest, astron omers have, to a very great extent, devoted their time 'and instruments to the more fascinating and, perhaps, more useful subjects of double-stars, the Moon, the Sun, etc. During the many years devoted to comet-seeking, I have invariably marked on one of my star-charts the position of every nebula revealed by my comet-seeker, (a 4%-in(3h re fractor). This habit has saved me many hours of anxious watching to detect motion in a nebulous object found, which, at the time of finding, I could not determine whether it were a nebula or a comet. Recourse to my chart with its recorded nebulae in the position observed, has settled the matter at once. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
