Description
English: Tabulae Rudolphinae, quibus astronomicae scientiae, temporum longuinquitate collapsae Restauratio continetur; A Phoenice illo Astronomorum Tycho Ex Illustri & Generosa Braheorum in Regni Daniae familiâ oriundo Equite,..., Jona Saurius (= Saur, Johann, Sauer, Johannes; Saurius, Johannes), Ulm 1627. The title page of Johannes Kepler's Rudolphine Tables (1627), the most accurate and comprehensive star catalogue and planetary tables published up until that time. It contained the positions of over 1000 stars and directions for locating the planets within our solar system. Kepler finished the work in 1623 and dedicated it to his patron, the Emperor Rudolf II, but actually published it in 1627. It is the first scientific work which extensively employs the new concept of logarithms. The table's findings support Kepler's laws and the theory of a heliocentric astronomy.
