Abstract

I SUGGESTED a new method of observation for time determination in my letter in NATURE for October 29, 19321, and Mr. H. L. P. Jolly has made some interesting omments thereon2. My principal aim was to find a method which would be sensibly free from systematic error. Since my first communication, observations have been obtained in India with a first experimental equipment by three observers—Messrs. Mathur, Banerji and myself on seven nights each, before I came away from India on leave; and further observations on fourteen evenings have since been made by Mathur and Banerji.
