Irony[edit]

Just thought I'd say I find it ironic and amusing to see "TowardsTheLight" editing the British Astronomical Association page. Move to the darkness for better visibility! Unless you're a solar astronomer. -mattbuck (Talk) 11:07, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

That's true! I'll turn the lights off soon. TowardsTheLight (talk) 13:25, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

A page you started (Donald Sadler) has been reviewed![edit]

Jesse Ramsden[edit]

Thanks for adding the reference to a nice article. I started worked on this page last year and my intention was to come back and enlarge all the sections on instruments and dig up relevant images. The main problem is to find more references to material that is on the web and some non-copyright images. I had thought of trying to contact McDonnel to see if she had anything to provide. Care to assist? I'm very busy with another page at the moment.  Peter Mercator (talk) 12:37, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, Peter Mercator. I've been trying to add new references to articles about the history of astronomy, and found something relevant to Ramsden, so added that. There are some images relevant to Ramsden on the Wikimedia Commons, so it should be straightforward to add some from there. There are several in the category https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Jesse_Ramsden . I might have a go sometime. I'll have a look at some old books to try to find out-of-copyright images that could be scanned, but that might take a few weeks.TowardsTheLight (talk) 13:42, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John Jones (astronomer), you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Arfon. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
