An Atlas of Local Group Galaxies (Astrophysics and Space by Paul W. Hodge

By Paul W. Hodge

A really critical blunders used to be made in an prior evaluation of this e-book via novice astronomer Roger Raurbach. He said that 4 of the 5 globular clusters of the Fornax dwarf galaxy have been misidentified within the Atlas. that's flawed. the 3 internal clusters have been stumbled on by means of Harlow Shapley, Walter Baade and Edwin Hubble and that i chanced on the 2 outer clusters; their identities, as proven within the Atlas, have been released within the Astronomical magazine, quantity sixty six, web page eight, 1961. Their positions are recognized to specialist astronomers and a number of other papers, together with a few in keeping with Hubble house Telescope photos, were released lately, overlaying either color-magnitude diagrams of the clusters' stars and spectroscopy, giving their metallicities. Please my score of this booklet, that is meaningless, as i'm an writer.
