By Paul W. Hodge

A really severe errors used to be made in an previous 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 improper. the 3 internal clusters have been came across by means of Harlow Shapley, Walter Baade and Edwin Hubble and that i came upon 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 famous to expert astronomers and several other papers, together with a few in response to Hubble house Telescope photographs, were released lately, masking either color-magnitude diagrams of the clusters' stars and spectroscopy, giving their metallicities. Please my score of this publication, that is meaningless, as i'm an writer.
