Named in memory of Charles Edward Adams (18701945), New Zealand Government Astronomer and Seismologist 1912-36. Among his many innovations was the introduction of the P and Q coefficients for ephemeris computation. He began the transmission of radio time signals in New Zealand, pioneered the use of the cine-camera for astronomical timing and devised one of the first moon cameras for direct measurement of the moon's position against background stars. He was also noted for his contributions to seismology. (M 18305)
