Julius Heinrich Franz (1847-1913) was a German astronomer and director of the observatory at the University of Breslau. He is most noted for his measurements of features near the lunar limbs. He published a popular book about the Moon in 1906 called "Der Mond". In this work he named some lunar mares along the limb the Mare Orientale, Mare Autumni and Mare Veris. The latter two were later renamed to the Lacus Autumni and Lacus Veris. The Mitteilungen contain a number of papers by Franz himself and other astronomers, such as Paul Neugebauer, Harry Meyer, Walter Zimmermann, Mainka, mostly dealing with lunar observations.
*Carl Wilhelm Wirtz (1876-1939) was a German astronomer who worked at the observatories in Kiel and Strasbourg. He is best known for his statistical studies of redshift-distance correlation of spiral galaxies. - Visit our website to see more images!
