Miklós Konkoly-Thege

Miklós Konkoly-Thege (b. 20 January 1842 - d. 17 February 1916) was a Hungarian astronomer and land-owner noble.[1] [2]


He studied astronomy and physics at the universities of Budapest (1857-1860) and Berlin (1860-1862).[3] After his studies he continued to visit the observatories of Göttingen, Greenwich, Heidelberg and Paris. During 1871 Konkoly-Thege constructed a telescope within his castle-residence, and in 1874 constructed an observatory in his palace park within Ógyalla; observations from here were used by Radó Kövesligethy to produce the Ógyallan Catalogue of Spectra.
