Reference Code: GBR/0180/RGO 129
Scope and Contents These volumes contain a variety of standardised pro formas on which the reduction of stellar observations have been made. The forms seem to have been completed whilst loose and to have been bound up at a later date.
Dates: predominantly 1840s-1910s
Conditions Governing Access: N.B. PLEASE ORDER 48 HOURS IN ADVANCE. Some items in this collection are very large making them awkward to handle. Many also exhibit signs of red rot degradation. Requests for access may be directed to the Royal Greenwich Observatory Archivist by sending an email to mss@lib.cam.ac.uk. Three items/ sets of items noted as additions in the manuscript draft catalogue (''New Constants for Uncatalogued Stars, Greenwich Twelve Year Catalogues of Stars, Annual Catalogues 1877-1886'') were not found on the shelf at cataloguing in 2011.

The UK Archival Thesaurus has been integrated with our catalogue, thanks to Kings College London and the AIM25 project for their support with this.
