Astronomie in und um Prag - Kolloquium des AK Astronomiegeschichte
------------------------------------------------------------------

Die naechste Internationale Wissenschaftliche Jahrestagung der 
Astronomischen Gesellschaft (AG) findet vom 20. bis 25. September 2004
in Prag statt: Thema "From Cosmological Structures to the Milky
Way", Tagungs-Web-Seite: 
http://www.astro.uni-jena.de/Astron_Ges/agtagprag.html

Der Arbeitskreis Astronomiegeschichte plant in diesem Zusammenhang ein
Kolloquium mit dem Thema: "Astronomie in Prag", das am Montag, dem 20.
September 2004, stattfindet. Bei diesem Thema "Astronomie in und um Prag"
denkt man zunaechst an die Bluete der Wissenschaften unter Kaiser Rudolf
II., besonders an Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) und
an Marco Marci de Kronland (1595-1667). Doch schon im Mittelalter finden
sich - besonders in der Zeit Wenzels - wichtige astronomische
Handschriften. Ein Highlight instrumenteller Art ist die Astronomische Uhr
am Rathaus am Altstaedter Markt; aber auch die Instrumente von Jost Buergi
und Erasmus Habermel (Tychos Sextanten), die sich im Technischen
Nationalmuseum (Narodni Technicke Muzeum) in Prag befinden.
      
Aus der Barockzeit ist das Clementinum wichtig, das fruehere Jesuitenkolleg
(1556; Josef Stepling (1716-1778), Direktor seit 1751), heute
Nationalbibliothek (u.a. mittelalterliche astronomische Handschriften). Auf
die ehemalige Sternwarte deutet noch der Astronomische Turm (1751) hin.

Im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert waeren folgende Namen zu erwaehnen: Christian
Doppler (1803-1853), Josef Petzval (1807-1891), Ernst Mach (1838-1916),
Erwin Finlay-Freundlich (1885-1964) und Albert Einstein (1879-1955), der
1910/11 in Prag taetig war.

Zeitplan:

Sonntag, 19. September 2004, ab 19 Uhr gemuetliches Treffen in einem 
Restaurant in Prag. Wahrscheinlich wird vorher, etwa um 16 Uhr, ein
astronomiehistorischer Stadtrundgang in Prag angeboten.

Montag 20. September 2004, 10 bis 17 Uhr
Tagung in der Akademie der Wissenschaften in Prag, Vorlesungssaal
Nr. 206, 2. OG, Raum Nr. 20 
      
Adresse: Akademie ved CR (Presidium), Narodni 3, Praha 1
(gegenueber dem Nationaltheater)

9-17 Optional excursion to the American Precision Museum, Windsor, Vt, and
to the Russell Porter Museum and turret telescopes in Springfield, VT, with
lunch at the Hartness House Planned excursions

We plan to have a day of optional field trips. In the morning we will visit
the American Precision Museum in Windsor, VT where we can inspect two
floors of precision machines. We hope to make special arrangement to visit
the stores, which are filled with additional machines. Of special interest
are several ruling engines.

The American Precision Museum

We will then travel to Springfield, VT and lunch at the Hartness House. An
underground tunnel connects the Hartness House with the Hartness Turret
Telescope (refractor) which will be open for our inspection.

The Hartness Turret Telescope

We are making arrangements to visit the restored Porter Turret Telescope
(reflector) located on a nearby hill. The building is large enough to
accommodate several people and the instrument is used in the daytime to
project the solar image.
