An analysis of the first three catalogues of southern star clusters and nebulae

Those who like astronomical history will enjoy reading chapter 2, 3 and 4.

Ch 2 is about Nicolas Lacaille
Ch 3 is about James Dunlop
Ch 4 is about John Herschel

Dr Graeme White was my main supervisor.

Parramatta Lot

James Dunlop made his catalogue of star clusters, nebulae and galaxies from a rented house on the north side of Hunter St. Parramatta.

In 1935 the house was gone, this photo shows a vacant lot on the left side of the two church towers, with three old cars out the front. The house next door to Dunlop's place is on the corner of Hunter and Marsden St.
