Keepers of the Double Stars

18.5 Inch Clark at Dearborn


Dr. Joseph S. Tenn, of Sonoma State University, published a very  fine article in the Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage  (2013) summarising the key figures in double star astronomy over the centuries.

You can view the essay here.

I do hope you enjoy the work.

  1. It looks like another fascinating and well written article. I perused it and am now looking forward to reading it one cloudy night, at my leisure.

  2. Hello Otto,

    Yep. It is sure nice to see modern scholarship on such a fascinating and important part of our astronomical heritage.
