A 4 inch Cooke in Tewksbury

 

A 4 inch Cooke in Tewksbury


George Banaster observing from Mythe in Tewkesbury using a 4 inch Thomas Cooke and Sons telescope observed the Trapezium in Orion. In the autumn of 1895 he was able to glance some of the small stars in the Great Orion Nebula.



He noted that the positions of some of the stars were slightly different to those that were seen in the diagram on page 319 of Denning’s ‘Telescopic Works’.
