Catalogue Note

Wing's posthumous Astronomia britannica, a lengthy treatise on the Copernican movements of the planets, supported by observations by earlier astronomers and ones by Wing and his English contemporaries, was his most significant publication. It influenced astronomers both in England and abroad and resulted in the acceptance of the Copernican planetary system over the Tychonian model.
