Title:From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomer [electronic resource] : How to Advance to the Next Level
Author(s): Dave Eagle
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The beginning astronomical observer passes through a series of stages.The initial stage is hugely exciting and gives beginners a real buzz as they discover some of the faint fuzzy objects, markings on the planets, rings aroundSaturn and the craters o n the Moon. But as novice stargazers progress, they want to know what more there is than looking at faint fuzzy blobs or indistinct planet markings. Many novices jump to the conclusion wrongly that theyneed to spend lots of money on expensive equipment to progress. From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomer has been written specifically to address this group of budding amateur astronomers. Astronomy is much more than aquick sightseeing tour. Patient observers who develop their skills will start to app reciate what they are seeing, knowing exactly what to look out for on any particular night. Equally important, they will learn what not to expect tosee. This guide is for those who want to develop their observing skills beyond mere sightseeing, learning some of the techniques used to carry out enjoyable and scientifically useful observations. It will also direct readersto information to make informed choices about what can be seen and when. All beginners who are keen to develop their skills as an amate ur astronomer can profit from the advice and gain much more from their time out observing

Title:It Came From Outer Space Wearing an RAF Blazer! [electronic resource] : A Fan's Biography of Sir Patrick Moore
Author(s): Martin Mobberley
Date:2013
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:To British television viewers, the name Patrick Moore has been synonymous with Astronomy and Space Travel since he first appeared on The Sky at Night in 1957. To amateur astronomers he has been a source of inspiration, joy,humour and even an eccentri c role model since that time. Most people know that his 55 years of presenting The Sky at Night is a world record, but what was he really like in person? What did he do away from the TV cameras, in hisobservatory, and within the British Astronomical Assoc iation, the organisation that inspired him as a youngster? Also, precisely what did he do during the War Years, a subject that has always been shrouded in mystery? Martin Mobberley,a friend of Patrick Moores for 30 years, and a former President of the Bri tish Astronomical Association, has spent ten years exhaustively researching Patricks real life away from the TV cameras. His childhood, RAF service,tireless voluntary work for astronomy and charity and his endless book writing are all examined in detail. His astronomical observations are also examined in unprecedented detail, along with the battles he fought along the way and hishatred of bureaucracy and political correctness. No fan of Sir Patrick Moore can possibly live without this work on their booksh elf!

Title:The Great Refractor of Meudon Observatory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Audouin Dollfus
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The large telescope at Meudon, the Grande Lunette, with an 83 centimeter diameter, has become legendary. When it was conceived (after 1870), Astronomy was limited to visual observation. Knowledge of the sky was limited towhat one could see with the h uman eye, assisted only by optical means. The large telescopes produced at this time allowed for higher magnifications, permitting close-up views the Meudon telescope was able to accomplish this perfectly.At Meudon, which was to become a Mecca for visual observation, the major planets were examined in a way that no other telescope had previously been able to. The telescope monitored the state of their atmospheres and mapped theappearance of their surfaces. Through the telescope, one could see the nuclei o f comets, revealing their very small size, and by using a micrometer one could measure the separation of double stars and the diameters of asteroids.With a marvelous little instrument, the polarimeter, the nature of clouds in planetary atmospheres could b e determined and the type of surface material identified. The Grande Lunette has remained to this day the largest refractingtelescope in Europe. Audouin Dollfus (1924-2010), a world-renowned astronomer who spent his entire working life at the Meudon Obser vatory, describes the great years of the Meudon refractor. He gives the entire story of thisinstrument, from the birth of the concept that drove Jules Janssen at the end of the nineteenth century, to the idea that French astronomy could provide an outstan ding telescope which would approach the limits of the technical andindustrial resources of that time. Out of action since the 1990s, the year 2006 marked the first steps toward restoration and public reopening of the great instrument. This English transla tion is by Richard McKim, a Past Presidentof the British Astronomical Association who often worked both with Audouin Dollfus and the instrument which forms the subject of this book

Title:Visual Lunar and Planetary Astronomy [electronic resource]
Author(s): Paul G Abel
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With the advent of CCDs and webcams, the focus of amateur astronomy has to some extent shifted from science to art. The object of many amateur astronomers is now to produce stunning images that, although beautiful, are notintended to have scientific merit. Paul Abel has been addressing this issue by promoting visual astronomy wherever possible at talks to astronomical societies, in articles for popular science magazines, and on BBC TVs The Sky atNight. Visual Lunar and Planetary Astronomy is a comp rehensive modern treatment of visual lunar and planetary astronomy, showing that even in the age of space telescopes and interplanetary probes it is still possible to contributescientifically with no more than a moderately priced commercially made astrono mical telescope. It is believed that imaging and photography is somehow more objective and more accurate than the eye, and this has led to a peculiarcrisis of faith in the human visual system and its amazing processing power. But by analyzing observation s from the past, we can see how accurate visual astronomy really is! Measuring the rotational period of Mars and makingaccurate lunar charts for American astronauts were all done by eye. The book includes sections on how the human visual system works, ho w to view an object through an eyepiece, and how to record observations and keep a scientificnotebook. The book also looks at how to make an astronomical, rather than an artistic, drawing. Finally, everything here will also be of interest to those imagers who wish to make their images more scientifically applicable bycombining the methods and practices of visual astronomy with imaging
