In this work Gauss systematically developed the method of orbit calculation from three observations he had devised in 1801 to locate the planetoid Ceres, the earliest discovered of the "astroids",  which had been spotted and lost by G. Piazzi in January 1801. Gauss predicted where the planetoid would be found next, using improved numerical methods based on least squares, and a more accurate orbit theory based on the ellipse rather than the usual circular approximation. Gauss's calculations, completed in 1801, enabled the astronomer Heinrich W.M. Olbers to find Ceres in the predicted position, a remarkable feat that cemented Gauss's reputation as a mathematical and scientific genius. Gauss found the reputation his astronomical work gained for him so attractive that he decided upon a career in astronomy, becomming the director of the Göttingen Observatory in 1807 (Norman I, 879).
