Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)


As we have seen, from the time of Galileo right through to the early nineteenth century, astronomers were restricted to viewing the Universe in visible light by peering through the telescope eyepiece; sketching, careful measurement, and written notes were the only practical means by which telescopic observations were capable of being made.
