Named in honor of the founder of the Ogyalla {see planet  (1259)} Observatory, Miklós (Nicolaus) von Konkoly Thege {1842–1916}. He was chiefly interested in the new methods of celestial photography and astrophysics — especially spectroscopy. In 1898, Konkoly Thege presented his observatory to the Hungarian government, together with the funds necessary to ensure its continuation. The instruments became the basis for the new Budapest observatory. From 1890 Konkoly Thege directed the Hungarian Meteorological Service until his retirement in 1911. (LDS)
