A Cooke for Old Trafford


In 1856 the  Rev Thomas Buckley of Old Trafford Manchester purchased a portable 3.5 inch Thomas Cooke telescope for £50. I have not been able to discover any references to observations he might have made with the Cooke telescope.

All I know regarding Buckley is that he appears to be the Honorary Secretary of the school for deaf children in Old Trafford. The school was built in 1860 and adjoins the Botanic Gardens in Old Trafford
