Beobachtungen angestellt auf der Sternwarte des Kammerherrn von Bülow. Heft III

WHOEVER knows the good work that has been done at the Solar Observatory at Bothkamp will hear with regret that the observatory has ceased to exist. It seems that the work was discontinued as soon as Dr. Vogel left it to take his place in the new observatory of Berlin. The history of M. von Billow's observatory is a fresh proof that work which requires long and continued observations cannot be made dependent on the generosity of a single man, but must be carried on by the State; yet everybody will join in Dr. Lohse's hope that the proprietor of the observatory, to whose liberality we are indebted for the observations made during many years, by Dr. Vogel and Dr. Lohse, and for their publication, will decide to continue his generous and useful work at a future time.
