Eduard Heis

Eduard Heis (1806 – 1877) was a German mathematician and astronomer.

His star atlas (Atlas Coelestis Novus), which was based on the Uranometria Nova, helped define the constellation borders in the northern sky. His other publications included a treatise on the eclipses during the Peloponnesian war, Halley's comet, and some mathematical text books.
