John Hicks, "Building a Roll-Off Roof Observatory: A Complete Guide for Design and Construction (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)"
Springer | 2008-12-11 | ISBN: 0387766030 | 145 pages | PDF | 4,2 MB

Almost every amateur astronomer who has taken the pursuit to its second level aspires to a fixed, permanent housing for his telescope, permitting its rapid and comfortable use and avoiding hours of setting-up time for each observing session. A roll-off roof observatory is the simplest and by far the most popular observatory design for today’s practical astronomers.

Building a Roll-off Roof Observatory is unique, covering all aspects of designing a roll-off roof observatory: planning the site, requirements for viewing, conforming to by-laws, and orientation of the structure. The chapters outline step-by-step construction of a typical building, and the accompanying CD-R provides complete, professional, detailed diagrams for each phase of construction.

The author is both an amateur astronomer and professional landscape architect, and thus is almost uniquely qualified to write this fully-detailed book . A professionally designed roll-off observatory could cost as much as $3000 just for the plans – which are provided free with Building a Roll-off Roof Observatory!

Real, existing buildings have been built from these plan-sets, with photographs to show how they turned out. At present there is no published book with the same degree of detail and expertise that this text offers the amateur astronomer. Three sets of scale plans are provided on the CD-R that accompanies the book. Full-size prints of the plans are available from the author, along with a bespoke design service if needed.

Daniel J. Schroeder, "Astronomical Optics"
Academic Press | 1999-09-13 | ISBN: 0126298106 | 394 pages | PDF | 17,4 MB

Provides a unified treatment of the characteristics of telescopes of all types, including telescopes whose performance is set by geometrical aberrations and the effect of the atmosphere, and those diffraction-limited telescopes designed for observations from above the atmosphere.

Good, comprehensive book that explains both basics and advanced aspects of optics used in telescopes. Most of the book focuses on optical aberrations and shows how to construct various telescopes and other optical devices like spectrographs with minimized coma, astigmatizm or spherical aberration. The book has chapters about spectrographs, CCDs and active optics which may be helpful to anyone who considers to add such elements to his/her telescope.

Astronomical Optics and Elasticity Theory
Springer | 2008-12 | ISBN: 3540689044 | 380 pages | PDF | 15,5 MB

Astronomical Optics and Elasticity Theory provides a very thorough and comprehensive account of what is known in this field. After an extensive introduction to optics and elasticity, the book discusses variable curvature and multimode deformable mirrors, as well as, in depth, active optics, its theory and applications. Further, optical design utilizing the Schmidt concept and various types of Schmidt correctors, as well as the elasticity theory of thin plates and shells are elaborated upon. Several active optics methods are developed for obtaining aberration corrected diffraction gratings. Further, a weakly conical shell theory of elasticity is elaborated for the aspherization of grazing incidence telescope mirrors.

The very didactic and fairly easy-to-read presentation of the topic will enable PhD students and young researchers to actively participate in challenging astronomical optics and instrumentation projects.

Robert Thompson, Barbara Fritchman Thompson, "Astronomy Hacks"

O'Reilly Media | 2005-06-17 | ISBN: 0596100604 | 410 pages | CHM | 17,2 MB

Why use the traditional approach to study the stars when you can turn computers, handheld devices, and telescopes into out-of-this-world stargazing tools? Whether you're a first timer or an advanced hobbyist, you'll find Astronomy Hacks both useful and fun. From upgrading your optical finder to photographing stars, this book is the perfect cosmic companion.

This handy field guide covers the basics of observing, and what you need to know about tweaking, tuning, adjusting, and tricking out a 'scope. Expect priceless tips and tools for using a Dobsonian Telescope, the large-aperture telescope you can inexpensively build in your garage. Get advice on protocols involved with using electronics including in dark places without ruining the party.

"Astronomy Hacks" begins the space exploration by getting you set up with the right equipment for observing and admiring the stars in an urban setting. Along for the trip are first rate tips for making most of observations. The hacks show you how to:

* Dark-Adapt Your Notebook Computer
* Choose the Best Binocular
* Clean Your Eyepieces and Lenses Safely
* Upgrade Your Optical Finder
* Photograph the Stars with Basic Equipment

The O'Reilly Hacks series has reclaimed the term "hacking" to mean innovating, unearthing, and creating shortcuts, gizmos, and gears. With these hacks, you don't dream it-you do it--and "Astronomy Hacks" brings space dreams to life. The book is essential for anyone who wants to get the most out of an evening under the stars and have memorable celestial adventures.

James Barter, "Telescopes"

Lucent Books | 2004-10-29 | ISBN: 1590185684 | 112 pages | PDF | 2,2 MB

Ancient Greek and Egyptian scientists dreamed of viewing Earth's distant cousins scattered throughout the solar system but it was not until the early seventeenth century that telescopes made such dreams a reality. Simple telescopes provided the first extension of eyesight that shifted authority in the observation of the universe from men to instruments.

Within a short time, telescopes defined the universe and ignited an interest in knowing the universe's origins and possibly even its eventual demise. Enormous improvements in telescopes in the twentieth century captured and focused the light from bodies billions of light years away.

Newer ones even captured X-rays and Gamma rays that better defined the known universe. As the end of the century drew near, the Hubble telescope was launched into orbit to beam back the most dazzling photographs of the most distant bodies ever detected. Because of telescope improvements, astronomers have added a new quest in understanding the universe, the search for life beyond Earth.

Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars: 250+ Wonderful Sky Objects to See and Explore (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series) By Bojan Kambic

Publisher: Springer 2009-10-26 | 510 Pages | ISBN: 0387853545 | PDf | 23.7 MB

Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars is a complete guide to practical astronomy, written for beginners, intermediate-level astronomers, and even people who have not yet turned their gaze to the night sky. The required observing equipment to get the full value from this book is no more than a pair of regular 10 x 50 binoculars, but even more can be seen with a small astronomical telescope.

This comprehensive introduction to astronomy and practical observing is far more than a guide to what can be seen in the night sky through binoculars. It introduces the reader to some basic (and some not-so-basic) astronomical concepts, and discusses the stars and their evolution, the planets, nebulae, and distant galaxies. There is a guide to selecting and using binoculars for astronomy, as well, as a ‘getting ready to observe’ section containing invaluable practical hints and tips.

The second part of the book is an extraordinarily complete atlas and guide to the night sky down to 30º N (covering all the USA and Europe). It is illustrated with superb and sometimes beautiful amateur astronomical photographs, detailed maps (down to 5th magnitude), descriptions, and data on all astronomical objects of interest.
