Wednesday September 12, 1894

Went to Troughton and Simms’ about alteration of microscope of Astrographic micrometers & Posn microm. of 28in telescope. Saw the new Astrographic micrometer made for Prof. Turner.

William Christie, Astronomer Royal



RH says..... Christie is straight back to business after his long holiday. It is nice to see his interest in the instrumentation ordered by Turner, his former Chief Assistant, in his new role as director of the Radcliffe Observatory in Oxford.
