Quotation

In every Landskip shew a fair Horizon, the Sky either clear or overcast with Clouds, expressing the rising or setting of the Sun to issue (as it were) from or over some Hill, or Mountain, or Rock ; the Moon or Stars are never to be expressed in a fair Landskip, but in a Night-piece I have often seen it, as in a piece of our Sarinus being taken by night, and in others. As an Astronomer with his Quadrant taking the height of the Moon, and another with his Cross-staff taking the distance of certain Stars, their man standing at a distance with his Dark-lanthorn, to see their Degrees when they had made their observation ; these things, as taking of the Partridge with the Loo bell, and the like, become Night-pieces very well.
