Описание: Your Passport to the Universe The night sky is alive with many wonders––distant planets, vast star clusters, glowing nebulae, and expansive galaxies, all waiting to be explored. Let respected astronomy writer Philip Harrington introduce you to the universe in Star Watch, a complete beginner's guide to locating, observing, and understanding these celestial objects. You'll start by identifying the surface features of the Moon, the banded cloud tops of Jupiter, the stunning rings of Saturn, and other members of our solar system. Then you'll venture out beyond our solar system, where you'll learn tips and tricks for finding outstanding deep-sky objects from stars to galaxies, including the entire Messier catalog––a primary goal of every serious beginner. Star Watch features a detailed physical description of each target, including size, distance, and structure, as well as concise directions for locating the objects, handy finder charts, hints on the best times to view each object, and descriptions of what you'll really see through a small telescope or binoculars and with the naked eye. Star Watch will transport you to the farthest depths of space––and return you as a well-traveled, experienced stargazer.
Описание: Praise for Star Ware "Star Ware is still a tour de force that any experienced amateur will find invaluable, and which hardware-minded beginners will thoroughly enjoy. " - Robert Burnham, Sky & Telescope magazine "Star Ware condenses between two covers what would normally take a telescope buyer many months to accumulate.
Описание: Contains techniques, advice, hints, tips and spectacular color images from world experts in CCD astronomy from North America and Europe. Their insights are illustrated with color images. This book features techniques that range from using simple webcams to highly technical aspects such as supernovae patrolling.

Описание: Almost all amateur astronomers want to take photographs of the night sky. Intended for amateurs, this book looks at the various possibilities, including normal photography, CCD imaging, and modern techniques of computer enhancement. It includes sections about photographing different classes of astronomical object, from the Moon to faint nebulae.
Описание: Astrophysics is a subject that is often - with some justification - regarded as extremely difficult, requiring at least degree-level mathematics as a prerequisite to its understanding. Consequently, many amateur astronomers just don't bother, and miss out on the fascinating fundamentals of the subject, and often on an understanding of exactly what they are observing.Mike Inglis' quantitative approach to astrophysics cuts through all the incomprehensible mathematics, and explains all aspects of astrophysics in simple terms.A unique feature of this book is the way that example objects for practical observation are given at every stage, so that practical astronomers can go and look at the objected or objects under discussion, using only commercial amateur equipment.

Описание: Because today's amateur astronomical telescopes are both powerful and affordable, spectroscopy - once the province of professionals - is becoming more and more popular. Various spectroscopes, at prices to suit everyone, are now available "off the shelf". Practical Amateur Spectroscopy contains everything an amateur needs to grasp the basic principles, to begin observing, and to understand just what the spectra show. Contributions by leading practical amateurs from America and Europe cover a very wide range of amateur equipment and techniques. One even describes how an audio CD can be used to show solar emission and absorption lines!

Описание: This is the third edition of Phil Harrington's popular and comprehensive guide to astronomical equipment, written for both new astronomers as well as experienced amateurs. It includes numerous tips and tricks from other experienced astronomers. < From the Back Cover Praise for the Second Edition of Star Ware
Описание: Every amateur astronomer has at least heard of the many different catalogs of deep-sky objects; the most well known are the Messier, the Caldwell, the Herschel, and the NGC. All of these catalogs are, in general, readily available, but very few amateur observers are in a position to choose the best catalog for their particular deep-sky observing program, know how to use the catalog, or even realize just how many there are out there!The Amateur Astronomer's Guide to the Deep-sky Catalogs is a single compilation of the historical and modern astronomical deep-sky catalogs. It discusses their origins, compares what's in them, explains how to interpret the data they contain, and even outlines how readers can create suitable 'custom' catalogs for their own use. The last section provides a set of three deep-sky catalogs created by the author, for observers of different levels of experience, from newcomer to expert.

Описание: Practical Guide to Astrophotography is a complete guide to amateur astrophotography, from planning and purchasing equipment through to making high-quality images. This book contains information that would otherwise take a long time and a lot of patience to learn.It covers the commercial "hot products", comparing their features and ensuring that the reader chooses the best equipment вЂ“ within his budget вЂ“ for his chosen area. It covers the most common telescopes, software and cameras used for astrophotography by amateur astronomers, and describes step-by-step how to get from "dreaming about it" through buying the materials and building the system, to obtaining the best possible images. The combination of the product mix and practical processes covers a very large amateur astronomer user-base.This is not only a guide to setting up, itвЂ™s also a book that readers will frequently take with them in the field to help them on their journey to make images of the stars. ItвЂ™s targeted at providing practical knowledge and leverages "lessons learned" in actual field operations involved in astrophotography. This comprehensive book fills in all the blanks that are not fully covered in magazines or (multiple) other books.

Описание: This 2000 Edition of Sir Patrick MooreвЂ™s classic book has been completely revised in the light of changes in technology. Not only do these changes include commercially available astronomical telescopes and software, but also what we know and understand about the universe. There are many new photographs and illustrations. Writing in the easy-going style that made him famous as a writer and broadcaster, Sir Patrick introduced astronomy and amateur observing together, so that his reader gets an idea of what he is observing at the same time as how to observe. Almost half the book is Appendices. These are hugely comprehensive and provide hints and tips, as well as data (year 2000 onwards) for pretty well every aspect of amateur astronomy. This is probably the only book in which all this information is collected in one place.
