Harvard College Observatory Expedition: Boyden Station, Arequipa, Peru, 1889-1927

Note
General note: Caption continues: "Since on southern objects, the telescope will not run by the pier, it is necessary to use it on one side. This necessitates several nights for a very long exposure. It is not well to go more than 3 h [3 hours +=] from Meridian."
