Hi,Darkness moves, indeed, and I am all the more moved by these pictures because I spent six years of my working life at the observatory where Jules Janssen made these pictures more than a century ago. The instrument he made them with is not there any more, but the place is.Thanks from a reader and "a seeer".
thanks for the comment, that is really something, must have been wonderful.i saw some of these in paris, and was ready to get out my check book, till i saw it was a years salary.sure are pretty thoughis there a site for the place/instrument?best,matthew
The photos were probably made at the Paris Observatory, in Meudon, which is now one of the largest research institutes in Europe. I think the instrument doesn't exist anymore, only parts of it.
Wow, this is amazing!
