Disquistiones mathematicae de controuersijs et nouitatibus astronomicis, quas sub praesidio Christophori Scheiner...Ingolstadt, 1614
A comparison of various ancient and modern theories of the solar system with emphasis on the new and controversial ideas of post-medieval astronomers. Although he refutes the Copernican system, Scheiner praises the observations of Galileo. The work contains one of the first illustrations of the telescope and an early map of the moon with topographical details.
