The Bavarian Academy of Science and Humanities in Munich. has published a collection of all Kepler books.
In this collection there are new, and better readable prints. I have marked the important Latin written text.

So proudly we can say:
Kepler-Remote-Observatory - a local project to honour Johannes Kepler
