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

Title:Planetary Nebulae and How to Observe Them [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Griffiths
Date:2012
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:Astronomers' Observing Guides provide up-to-date information for amateur astronomers who want to know all about what is it they are observing. This is the basis of the first part of the book. The second part details observingtechniques for practical astronomers, working with a range of different instruments. Planetary Nebulae and How to Observe Them is intended for amateur astronomers who want to concentrate on one of the most beautiful classes ofastronomical objects in the sky. This book will help t he observer to see these celestial phenomena using telescopes of various apertures. As a Sun-like star reaches the end of its life, its hydrogen fuelstarts to run out. Itcollapses until helium nuclei begin nuclear fusion, whereuponthe starbegins to pulsat e, each pulsation throwing off a layer of the star's atmosphere. Eventually the atmosphere has all been ejected as an expanding cloud of gas, thestar's core is exposed and ultraviolet photons cause the shell of gas to glow brilliantly - that's planetary n ebula. Topics covered in this book include the astrophysical makeup of planetary nebulae, a history of their discovery,classification and description, telescopes, filters and observing techniques - in short everything anyone would need to observe planetar y nebulae. A special feature of this book is the inclusion of over 100 nebulae in our Milky WayGalaxy personally observed by the author using telescopes of various sizes, enabling readers to make up their own observing program or to follow the authors pro gram. The guide also includes photographs by the author of each object forease of identification along with their celestial coordinates, magnitudes and other pertinent information. Here is a volume that should be a welcome addition to any amateur astronom er's personal library, observing course, or school.With it in hand, you can begin sampling right away some of the most captivating objects in the sky. body>

Title:The Astronomer Jules Janssen [electronic resource] A Globetrotter of Celestial Physics
Author(s): Franoise Launay
Date:2012
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:Every aspect of the personality of Janssen (18241907) that DArtagnan of science, this bard of the Sun, and this audacious master builder is covered here by Franoise Launay, his attentive and equally eruditebiographer. A physicist, inventor and buil der, Janssen was guided by his energy and curiosity. His research followed two directions: on the one hand the atmospheres of the Earth and the Sun, and on the other, two techniques:spectroscopy and photography. Among his numerous voyages across the globe , he went to Japan in 1874 to follow the transit of Venus in front of the Sun, the same year in which he invented his famous photographic revolver, which was, intruth, a great technical success. To observe the Sun during total eclipses he traveled to the Indies in 1868, to Oran in 1870 (escaping from besieged Paris by balloon!), returned to India in 1871, left for Siam in 1875 and, in 1883,for an island in the Pacific. One can thus understand why Henriette often complained of the solitude in which she was left by her peripatetic husband: There are men who leave their wives for mistresses you do it for journeys!... Basking in the glow of his success, Janssen was able to undertake the construction of the great astrophysical observatory of which he had dream ed. It was at Meudon that he had it built.

Note:In these pages, the reader can follow the engaging saga of astronomical exploration in the southern hemisphere, in a modern merger of aesthetics, science, and a story of human endeavor. This book is truly a celebration ofsouthern skies. Jerry Bonnell , Editor - Astronomy Picture of the Day The southern sky became accessible to scientific scrutiny only a few centuries ago, after the first European explorers ventured south of the equator. Modernobserving and imaging techniques have since revealed what s eems like a new Universe, previously hidden below the horizon, a fresh astronomical bounty of beauty and knowledge uniquely different from the northern sky. The authors havecrafted a book that brings this hidden Universe to all, regardless of location or latitude. Treasures of the Southern Sky celebrates the remarkable beauty and richness of the southern sky in words and with world-class imagery. In part,a photographic anthology of deep sky wonders south of the celestial equator, this book also celebrates the human story of southern astronomy with an engaging and detailed history of key contributors to southern sky exploration. Theaccompanying text provides the reader with intriguing facts and useful information about the featured objects. The volume is a rranged by southern hemisphere season and brings to the printed page many of the most provocative andbeautiful astronomical images of our time, many in print for the first time. The collection of imagery covers a full range of deep sky astronomical object s, including the familiar and iconic as well as those that are more obscure butno less intriguing. Masterful, state of the art professional and amateur astrophotography highlights the authors' carefully selected deep sky treasures. DUST JACKET: The beauty and richness of the southern night sky is legendary.From southern latitudes the finest globular clusters in the sky are visible to the unaided eye, as are the nearest galaxies, the Magellanic Cloud

Note:Four hundred years ago in Middelburg, in the Netherlands, the telescope was invented. The invention unleashed a revolution in the exploration of the universe. Galileo Galilei discovered mountains on the Moon, spots on the Sun,and moons around Jupiter . Christiaan Huygens saw details on Mars and rings around Saturn. William Herschel discovered a new planet and mapped binary stars and nebulae. Other astronomers determined the distances to stars, unraveled thestructure of the Milky Way, and discovered th e expansion of the universe. And, as telescopes became bigger and more powerful, astronomers delved deeper into the mysteries of the cosmos. In his Atlas of Astronomical Discoveries,astronomy journalist Govert Schilling tells the story of 400 years of tel escopic astronomy. He looks at the 100 most important discoveries since the invention of the telescope. In his direct and accessible style, the author takes hisreaders on an exciting journey encompassing the highlights of four centuries of astronomy. Spec tacular photographs, taken with the largest telescopes on Earth and in space, portray the most distant corners of the universe. Selectingand describing the hundred most impressive and important astronomical discoveries is no easy task, but no one can mast er this feat as well as Govert Schilling, a veritable master of science communication. With captivating words andbreathtaking images, the Atlas of Astronomical Discoveries is a tour-de-force of humankinds almost unbelievable progress in understanding the cosmos over the past 400 years. Lars Lindberg Christensen, Head of ESOs Education andPublic Outreach Department and author of Cosmic Collisions (Springer 2009) A hyper modern concept, aimed at the multimedia generation. Sjaak Priester, science reporter in Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant A non plus ultra ofastronomical history with breathtaking photography.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The refracting telescope has a long and illustrious past. Heres what the author says about early telescopes and todays refractors: Four centuries ago, a hitherto obscure Italian scientist turned a home-made spyglasstowards the heavens. The lenses he used were awful by modern standards, inaccurately figured and filled with the scars of their perilous journey from the furnace to the finishing workshop. Yet, despite these imperfections, they allowedhim to see what no one had ever seen before a universe far more complex and dynamic than anyone had dared imagine. But they also proved endlessly useful in the humdrum of human affairs. For the first time ever, you could spy onyour neighbor from a distance, or monitor the approach of a war-mongering army, th us deciding the fate of nations. The refractor is without doubt the prince of telescopes. Compared with all other telescopic designs, the unobstructedview of the refractor enables it to capture the sharpest, highest contrast images and the widest usable f ield. No other telescope design can beat it on equal terms. From a practical point of view, refractors are the most comfortableand least troublesome telescope to observe with. They require little maintenance and cool down rapidly to allow you to observe i n minutes rather than hours. Because a refractor has more back focus than almost any other form oftelescope, it can accept the widest range of accessories, including filters, cameras, and binoviewers. Explore in this book what makes refractors such a good choice for amateur astronomers and how to choose the right one for you.Also get some great tips on how to use your new refractor. Get started now, seeing for yourself the dazzling and complex universe first opened to human sight more just 400 years ago

Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Sun Recorded Through History is a text that reconstructs past solar activity based on information from historical documents, complementing studies using other techniques. Historical accounts describing phenomena related tosolar activity, such as aurorae, sunspots, and corona observed during solar eclipses can be used as a proxy of solar activity in the past. These descriptions are reviewed, on the one hand providing primary material for the history ofastronomy and, on the other, verifying or refu ting current ideas concerning the time variability of the Sun on the scale of centuries. Documents predating the discovery of photography (around 1840) that contain information on thesetopics are highlighted, but modern drawings are also included. The low er temporal limit of study is set by the archaeoastronomy of prehistoric sources. In addition, the necessary background on the Sun is provided, with special emphasison observing techniques and the influences of telescopes and the Earth's atmosphere on the data obtained from solar observations. This book contains over two hundred figures, many of which are reproductions of historical documents andhand drawings. It is an essential resource on the evolution of solar observations and will be of interest to st udents and researchers in solar physics, as well as astronomers and historians of science

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Milky Way has captivated the mind of multitudes ever since the beginning of time. Particularly striking are its apparent dusty gaping voids. With the advent of near-infrared technology, astronomers have discovered an awesomenew view of its struct ure, and of the structure of other galaxies around us. Galaxies are encased within shrouds of the night: shrouds or veils of cosmic dust, which have given us a totally incomplete picture of what our majesticUniverse actually looks like. Shrouds of the Nig ht features some of the most remarkable early photographic work of masters such as Isaac Roberts and Edward Barnard, before presenting to the reader the unmasked (dust penetrated) view ofour cosmos, using some of the worlds largest ground and space-based telescopes. Galaxies are the 'ecosystems' of the cosmos vast assemblages in which gas and dust are recycled through successive generations of stars. Theauthors of this beautiful book describe our ever-sharpening view of the Milky Way, the galaxy that is our home and the discovery of the other galaxies that are its neighbors in deep space. Their voyage lies not in seeking newlandscapes but in having new eyes. In fine images and eloquent text, the two distinguished authors convey the fascination indeed t he inspiration of this scientific quest. -Lord Martin Rees of Ludlow OM Kt PRS AstronomerRoyal, President of the Royal Society, Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics, University of Cambridge. It's hard to decide what is most appealing about this unusua l offering: its brilliantly chosen treasury of illustrations, or thetext's poetic journey of discovery from smoke to galaxies, from the minuscule to the gigantic and the astonishing connections between them. Along the path are rich insights into the varie ties of astronomical seeing, from the history ofphotography to the space telescopes that extend our vision beyond the visible. Historical connections are everywhere, from Jean Petit's

Note:Without the Sun, all life on Earth would perish. But what exactly do we know about this star that lights, heats, and powers Earth? Actually, we know quite a lot, thanks mainly to a host of eager solar observers. Looking directlyat the Sun is EXTREMEL Y hazardous. But many astronomers, both professional and amateur, have found ways to view the Sun safely to learn about it. You, too, can view the Sun in all of its glorious detail. Some of the newest, mostexciting telescopes on the market are affordable to amateur astronomers or even just curious sky watchers, and with this guide to what the Sun has to offer, including sunspots, prominences, and flares, plus reviews of the latestinstruments for seeing and capturing images of the Sun, you can contribute t o humankinds knowledge of this immense ball of glowing gases that gives us all life.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Light is all around us even when we do not see it. Our eyes do not detect the higher energy and shorter-than-visible-wavelength ultraviolet radiation, yet we know it is there from the sunburn we receive in Arizona. We knowthat window glass can block ultraviolet rays so we do not get a burn while driving with the windows rolled up. Our eyes do not detect the low-energy, long-wavelength infrared (IR) radiation but we know it exists from discussions of warapplications and televised images of guided wea pons targets. We also know about radio waves from the little boxes that talk to us and x-rays from the dentist's office. Patterns of Light, Chasing the Spectrum from Aristotle to LEDs,written by Steve Beeson and Jim Mayer starts with the visible the stra ight path of light. It continues with chapters detailing reflection (mirrors, storefront windows) and refraction (eyeglasses, binoculars). Color is thenintroduced with the query Why is the sky blue? After answering that and other similar questions (Why is snow white?), the book goes beyond the visible to the infrared and ultraviolet. Patterns of Lights many colorful photosand figures further aid in the readers grasp of the concepts discussed. Patterns of Light is a descriptive, rather than technical, book with the mathematics behind light included in the appendices. The book is designed for physicsstudents of optics and engineering, but will certainly be enjoyed by all readers interested in gaining a broader perspective on light and its history
