‎E.O. Apart from searches for comets, transit observations and planetary astronomy, the chief work carried out at Markree was the preparation of an extensive and accurate series of ecliptic star charts. The catalogue of these stars was published in Dublin over the period 1851 - 1856 in four volumes entitled "Catalogue of Stars near the Ecliptic Observed at Markree". The work contains the positions of 60,066 stars down to the 12th magnitude, of which only 8965 had previously been catalogued.
