Abstract : A spectral analysis method has been employed to investigate the division errors of the graduated circles associated with meridian circles. An analysis, based upon the data from Lick, La Plata, Cordoba and Uccle Observatories seems to indicate the presence of one periodic error of ten degrees on each studied circle, with variable amplitude, for the Repsold Instruments.
