Plate chi 5353 gamma Puppis
Is star marked (1) a double? It can not be two exposures of the same star, unless star is a composite.

This is the only plate given in the Ledger of gamma Puppis.

B plate. chi 5861  alpha Lupis - this seems to me the best B plate I have seen.

Plate chi 5840 ^[[beta Scuptoris]] K lines look faintly bright-edged.

Plate chi 7168 zeta Capricorni compared with alpha Aurigae chi 4534.
in zeta Cap. the hydrogen lines have about the same intensity as in alpha Aurigae, except h, which seems less conspicuous. The K lines seem broader, Fraunhofer's G ^[[band]] included. The line near h shorter lambda is much greater intensity in zeta Cap. It is these more intense than any hydrogen line. The shading is more pronounced than in alpha Aurigae and it looks as if zeta Cap [[strikethrough]] sh [[/strikethrough]] could hardly be in the same class.

Class I. The whole class includes all the G stars in which the H lines are intense.

(a) Typical star. delta Canis Maj. Defective G band.

H lines are not marked enough for this class.
