In poetry:

I must not heed that elemental Whirl
Where Arc on Arc the trainèd Planets swirl -
The Astronomic Marvels have no charm
For him who walks the Gloaming with his Girl.
"The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám Jr." by Wallace Irwin
So take our thanks, dear reader of the skies,
Devout astronomer, most humbly wise,
For lessons brighter than the stars can give,
And inward light that helps us all to live.

Once on a time the astronomers foresaw
The coming of a star to madden men:
Thus warned they fled the land, thinking that when
The folk were crazed, they'd hold the reins of law
"Sonnet XII." by Tommaso Campanella
Then add to these the bard who tamed
The monsters of the flood;
And with his oaten reed reclaim'd For by th' initials will be shown

Which to astronomers is known
By the name of heaven's queen.

Till broken in the shift of quieter
Dense altitudes tangential of your steel,
I am become geometries, and glut
Expansions like a blind astronomer
Dazed, while the worldless heavens bulge and reel
In the cold revery of an idiot.

Telescope – Mask System Approach Coronographic telescopes, and their primary mirrors, have characteristics that differ from typical astronomical telescopes.
Coronographic Methods for the Detection of Terrestrial Planets
Emphasis has been given to publications on technical issues; only very few papers on predominantly astronomical topics have been included. Our selection is very subjective, of course, but it should provide useful entry points into the literature. L.
Coronographic Methods for the Detection of Terrestrial Planets
As yet little work has been done with these detectors for astronomical imaging in ground-based instruments. CMOS imagers are also catching up with CCDs, but there remain a number of issues to be addressed, primarily the read noise which is still too high for practical astronomical imaging.
Coronographic Methods for the Detection of Terrestrial Planets
In any case, for a typical de ficiency 0 group that has no quotie nts among the first few non-abelian simple groups, it is clear that if it has any such quotient, the index must be so astronomically large as to be far beyond brute force computation.
Finite covers of random 3-manifolds
From astronomical observations, the Universe is known to have almost flat geometry, so the hidden-sector contribution should be introduced and tuned to suppress the cosmological constant.

As an astronomical measurement of dL involves a comparison of m and M (Eq. 1.7), the key benefit of using SNe Ia is that they have very similar absolute magnitudes, M, at peak.
