We have recently added to the University of Cambridge digital repository some scans of notes made here at the Cambridge Observatory over one hundred years ago.
The fragile notes were made by Hugh Frank Newall (1857-1944) as he used his fathers great 25-inch Cooke refractor on a variety of astronomical targets. At least one of the pages is the manuscript for his report to the Observatory Syndicate in 1895. Another is a study of the number of clear observing nights for 1895.
