    The 6-Inch Transit Circle Telescope was the workhorse instrument at the Naval Observatory for most of the 20th century. It was used to observe precise positions of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars, and thereby defined the fundamental celestial coordinate system. The six-inch transit circle is so named because its lens is six inches in diameter, and because the east-west coordinate (the right.

    This chapter presents a brief history of California’s transit services, creating a timeline of major events that have shaped transit’s performance and the services offered, and documenting the experiences of particular transit agencies. While early years are discussed briefly, the focus is on the.   One point in which the observing work has been lightened has been in the discontinuance of the altazimuth observations at the full of the moon, another in the shortening of the hours of the transit circle watch; and a further and most important one in the arrangement that the observers with the larger instruments should have help at their work.

The transit circle determines the right ascension of celestial objects, while the vertical circle measures only their declinations. Taking recent Washington Six-Inch and Seven-Inch Transit observing programs as exarrples, the observation and compilation of absolute catalogs are discussed.

The roles of quasi-absolute and differential catalogs in the formation of fundamental catalogs are also examined. A transit circle is a telescope mounted so that it can only move along the meridian from the zenith to the horizon, that is, about a fixed horizontal axis in a north-south vertical t circles, also known as meridian circles, are used to measure accurately the altitudes of stars and to time their passage across the observer's meridian.

History in Transit comprises Dominick LaCapra's explorations of relationships he believes have been insufficiently theorized: between experience and identity, between history and various theories of subjectivity, between extreme events and their representation, between institutional structures and the kinds of knowledge produced within them.
