Terraformed Mars in the 19th Century

Chalk it up to a series of sponsorships to the Astronomical and Spectrographic Societies from aristocrats with extemely ambitious expansion plans.

I could do that (or utilize many other advanced technologies), but my original question was "what would historical 19th Century astronomy spot?"

Handwaving can come later when I know what I need to handwave and alter.
