New Observatory in Catania housing a Cooke

 This new observatory in Catania in Sicily which was completed in 1890 is principally for astrophysics, celestial photography, meteorology and seismology.

 There is a 6-inch Cooke telescope fitted with photographic apparatus; Huggins's apparatus for photographing the solar corona; Mascart's apparatus for photographing atmospherical electricity, &c.
