AbstractIn order to assist other observatories working on improvements in meridian circle techniques, some of the difficulties encountered at the Dominion Observatory in its Mirror Transit Circle program are described. Sorne satisfactory aspects of the design, applicable perhaps to other instruments, are noted. An outline is given of the circumstances leading to abandonment of the project.
