At this time the brilliant researches of Kirchoff and Bunsen had strongly attracted the attention of physicists, and Janssen determined to devote himself to some of the problems that had been indicated by spectrum analysis.

When we compare this picture with the next one, made by Professor Ritchey with the 2-foot reflector (of 8 feet focal length), we appreciate immediately that the 40-inch, in spite of its great advantages for certain classes of work, is wholly unadapted for other investigations. As you know, a refractor of much smaller aperture...
