    Re: Newton and Halley
    From: Ted Gerrard

    Mike Daly is simply winding us up, playing games in order to extract sources and information
    it has taken some of us years to collect - in my own case 15 years and many thousands of £.
    For example the Royal Society charged me £94 (invoice no 400478) for a photograph of the artist's wash drawing of the 1742 engraving which accompanied the Newton letter to Halley.
    An eye opener Mike.
     
     Daly does not seem to know much about either Hooke's single mirrored instrument
    because he has drawn the horizon rays travelling straight through a solid mirror

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reflecting_instrument

     
    or the principles of double reflection - he has drawn two separate rays entering the telescope on Newton's instrument

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wki/Octant_%28instrument%29

     

    I have just spent an interesting afternoon downloading all Daly's Wikipedia articles and will watch with interest to see how long he takes to alter/update them.
