The application of photography to astronomical research is one of the great achievements of science. While the "pioneering experiments" date back to the days of Dr. J. W. Draper and Warren de la Rue, the vastly interesting and valuable results belong to the present decade. Astro-physics, "the new-born child of Astronomy'', owes its phenomenal growth and development, if not its birth, to the photographic lens and camera.
