Antony Cooke, "Make Time for the Stars: Fitting Astronomy into Your Busy Life (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)"

Springer | 2009 | ISBN: 0387893407 | 259 pages | PDF | 5,1 MB

Many amateur astronomers are short of time. A full-time career usually takes up most waking hours, and there very often simply isn’t time for leisurely observing sessions, at least a few hours’ sleep being something of an imperative during the week. Fortunately, modern technological advances such as computer-controlled telescopes equipped with GPS, north-seeking and level detection, have made setting up a telescope much quicker. Today’s imaging systems enable time-pressed astronomers to take excellent astrophotographs of many objects without the hours-long exposures that used to be a feature of this aspect of astronomy. This book explains what to attempt in a short timescale (and what not to), and how to use today’s top-value commercially-made equipment to get the most astronomy out of the least time.

Make Time for the Stars showcases a wide array of quickly performed astronomical projects, including various novel or new approaches to observing. There are also useful tips for maximizing and enhancing the user’s time at the telescope, extracting optimal performance, efficient set-up, and easily carried out optical maintenance. Significantly, the book features detailed information on alternative imaging techniques, which can provide exceptional levels of realism for far simpler and less time-consuming effort.

There is also guidance on equipment, such as, what to look for and also what to avoid, so that the reader may acquire only what is appropriate, and not more, for the kind of results he/she may have in mind. A wide range of available budgets is taken into account.

The book concludes with a guide for the efficient organization of deep-space observing (an area which is often frustrating and unproductive when time is limited), easy daytime observing projects, and an extensive Internet resource section.

Double Stars for Small Telescopes - More Than 2100 Stellar Gems for Backyard Observers

Sky Publishing (May 1, 2007) - 184 pages - English - PDF - 14.4 MB

Double stars are among the best-kept secrets in nature. Yet even a small scope will reveal that hundreds of bright stars are actually double or multiple suns. When fainter stars are included, tens of thousands turn out to be double.

Double Stars for Small Telescopes features an in-depth catalog of 2,101 double or multiple stars whose primary is magnitude 8 or brighter. Every entry contains the location of each stellar set (listed alphabetically by constellation), its name, the brightness of every star, the separation of the stars from each other, plus any known spectral and orbital information. Also included are descriptive comments by the author and other double-star observers that convey the beauty of many of these colorful pairs.

All the entries in Double Stars for Small Telescopes are considered by the author to be the most attractive and interesting of the more than 102,000 pairs listed in the Washington Double Star Catalog, the world's principal database of double- and multiple-star information. Double Stars for Small Telescopes, which includes an introduction to double stars, the 2,101-entry catalog, and a list of resources is perfect for those wanting to hunt down these hidden stellar treats.

Real Astronomy with Small Telescopes: Step-by-Step Activities for Discovery
Author: Michael K. Gainer - Publisher: Springer; 1 edition (2006) - English - Pages: 224 - Format: PDF - 3. 45 MB

This book is about using an 80mm refractor / 90mm Maksutov (such as a Helios 80 or Meade ETX90) as more than a "quick look" instrument, but rather something capable of use as an introduction to scientific observations. Emphasis is on measurement and discovery activities rather than on casual observing. There are two objectives to these activities: to re-enact the process of discovery and to provide amateur observers with the knowledge and skill that will help them make genuine contributions to the field of astronomy.

It is often said that users of small telescopes can conduct worthwhile scientific work, but 'how' is seldom explained except in the context of observations carried out by the most advanced amateur astronomers. This book provides the necessary introduction - derived from the author's many year of experience in teaching the subject - that will be the starting point for serious work.

Users will find many activities and projects suitable for an 80mm refractor or 90mm reflector or Maksutov that have not been published elsewhere.

From the reviews:

"The dozens of projects collected here are a combination of observations suitable for current research (such as classifying sun-spots or monitoring binary stars) and recreating classic experiments (such as determining the speed of light by timing Jupiter's moons). : Besides ample nuggets for science projects, a motivated amateur will gain understanding by doing the work, and : add purpose to his or her observations." (Stuart J. Goldman, Sky & Telescope, May, 2007)
