Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc (1580-1637). French artist Claude Mellan of the French astronomer Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc. Peiresc was a noted intellectual who corresponded with most of the great thinkers of the age. His own work was diverse, making important contributions to history, geography, egyptology, ecology and zoology. In 1610 Peiresc used a telescope to make observations of Jupiter's moons. In the same year he discovered the Orion Nebula. He coordinated observations of a lunar eclipse in 1635 and from the readings made accurate determinations of longitude.
