## Description

"a is the sphere, placed in half-holes on the axis bb, so that when its principal axis is parallel to the axis the telescope it gives only one image of the object. In a direction perpendicular to that axis it must be so placed that when it is moved by rotation of the axis bb the separation of the images shall be parallel to that motion. The angle of rotation is measured on the grduated circle C. The angle between the objects measured is = r sin 20, where r is a constant to be determined for each magnifying power employed." —The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1903
