Zeta Cancri seen with a Cooke

 

Zeta Cancri observed with a Cooke

I have only a small number of details regarding J L Stothert of Audley Bath, who had a 6 inch Cooke, I know that zeta Cancer was observed on April 17th 1880.

I assume he died in either late 1880 or early 1881 because in an advertisement in April 1881 the executors of the late J L Stothert are offering an observatory with a 6 inch Cooke for sale.
