Cooke sees Halley's Comet in 1910

Between April 11th and June 3rd 1910 Halley's comet was observed and photographed from the Transvaal Government Observatory in Johannesburg, South Africa. 

The photographs were taken using the 10 inch Cooke telescope that had originally been made for John Franklin Adams who made a full sky survey between 1904-1908 using a number  of Cooke telescopes and Cooke cameras.
