Trapezium faint stars seen with a 4.5 inch Cooke


To the editor of the Astronomical Register

sir- Your correspondent Mr D A Freeman, should be able to see both the small stars in the trapezium of Orion on a fine night with a 4.5 inch glass. I have seen them easily with a 4.5 inch telescope; but in saying this, I would also remark that on a bad night I have failed to see either of them through my 8.5 inch by Cooke of York.

I am sir yours faithfully Frederick Brodie- February 1865.
