The subject of telescopic vision was presented to the scientific world a few years ago in a series of articles written by Dr. G. J. Stoney. At that time Dr. Stoney discussed the proposition as applied to the vision of distant planets and drew the conclusion that astronomers were not able to detect certain details upon the planet Mars. Since the appearance of this series of articles a considerable discussion has taken place but no definite conclusions have been drawn.
