Established in 1877-78 in conjunction with the National Meteorological Observatory and National Central Observatory, the National Astronomical Observatory was located in Chapultepec Castle in Mexico City. Lieutenant Colonel Teodoro Quintana, the photographer of the Presidential Guard, became involved with the observatory in 1885 at the invitation of director Ángel Anguiano. During his tenure there, Quintana undertook the study of astrophotography, and began producing lunar photographs such as the one at hand.
