James Mullaney, Wil Tirion , "The Cambridge Double Star Atlas"

Cambridge University Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0521493439 | 154 pages | PDF | 12,3 MB

"Thanks to the genius of James Mullaney, and the artistic sensibility of Wil Tirion, backyard stargazers can now enjoy endless hours of double- and multiple-star observing. Mullaney's vivid descriptions of the finest showpieces truly inspire; Tirion's design is both handsome and practical. The work is destined to become an instant classic. Bravo!" Stephen James O'Meara - Author of the Deep-Sky Companions observing guides and columnist for Astronomy magazine.

"...the definitive treasure map to the night sky's most alluring deep-sky gems. essential addition to any stargazer's observing kit. This new work from James Mullaney, one of the world's most experienced double-star observers, and Wil Tirion, the dean of modern celestial cartographers, gives even the most experienced stargazer a lifetime supply of deep-sky wonders to explore and enjoy." - Rick Fienberg, Editor Emeritus, Sky & Telescope

This magnificent atlas contains the most attractive and interesting double and multiple stars for viewing with binoculars and telescopes. It is a must-have for stargazers who want to explore these fascinating objects. The first modern star atlas devoted to double and multiple stars, it plots over 2,000 selected pairs of stars, each labeled with discoverer, catalog, and/or observatory designations. A superb introduction to this important class of celestial objects, it is spiral bound and printed in red-light friendly colors, making it ideal for use in the field.

Written by experienced observer James Mullaney, and beautifully illustrated by renowned celestial cartographer Wil Tirion, it provides an easy-to-use 'celestial roadmap' to locate and identify double and multiple stars. Other deep-sky objects such as star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies are also included, and are color-coded for easy recognition and identification, making this an all-purpose observing reference.

Fred Schaaf, "The 50 Best Sights in Astronomy and How to See Them: Observing Eclipses, Bright Comets, Meteor Showers, and Other Celestial Wonders"

Wiley | ISBN: 0471696579 | 2007 | 288 pages | PDF | 6MB

The night sky holds endless fascination for anyone who chooses simply to look up and observe, but with so much to see, it can be difficult to know where to start. This remarkable book introduces you to the fifty best sights in astronomy and tells you exactly how to see them. In no time at all, you will learn how to find and appreciate the Orion group of constellations; the Summer Triangle; Venus, Jupiter, and Mars; the best meteor showers; man-made satellites; star clusters; novae; variable stars; and more. Once you start gazing, you'll see that the sky really is the limit—and discovering its amazing treasures will become your lifetime passion.

The sights are presented according to the field of view necessary to see them. Your eyes and a clear night sky are all you need to view the sights in the first part of the book, before moving on to those that can be observed through binoculars and, finally, a telescope. Concise descriptions and explanations of these spectacular visual wonders will deepen your appreciation of them and spur further exploration. You will also find the essential basic information on astronomical observation you need to get started, including observing conditions, techniques, telescopes, and astronomical measurements.

Bruce L. Gary "Exoplanet Observing Four Amateurs
2007 | English | 170 pages | PDF | 3,81 MB

This book is intended for use by amateur astronomers, not professional astronomers. The distinction is not related to the fact that professional astronomers understand everything in this book; it’s related to the fact that the professionals don’t need to know most of what’s in this book.

Professionals don’t need to know how to deal with telescopes with an imperfect polar alignment (because their telescopes are essentially perfectly aligned). They don’t have to deal with telescopes that don’t track perfectly (because their tracking gears are close to perfect). They don’t have to worry about focus changing during an observing session (because their “tubes” are made of low thermal expansion materials). They don’t have to worry about CCDs with significant “dark current” thermal noise (because their CCDs are cooled with liquid nitrogen). Professionals don’t have to worry about scintillation noise (because it’s much smaller with large apertures). Professionals can usually count on sharp images the entire night with insignificant changes in “atmospheric seeing” (because their observatories are at high altitude sites and the telescope apertures are situated well above ground level). Professionals also don’t have to deal with large atmospheric extinction effects (again, because their observatories are at high altitude sites).

If a professional astronomer had to use amateur hardware at an amateur site they would have to learn new ways to overcome the limitations that amateurs deal with every night. There are so many handicaps unique to the amateur observatory that we should not look to the professional astronomer for help on these matters. Therefore, amateurs should look for help from each other for solutions to these problems. In other words, don’t expect a book on amateur observing tips to be written by a professional astronomer; only another amateur can write such a book.

I’ve written this book with experience as both a professional astronomer and a post-retirement amateur. Only the first decade of my professional life was in astronomy, as a radio astronomer. The following three decades were in the atmospheric sciences, consisting of remote sensing using microwave radiometers. Although there are differences between radio astronomy and optical astronomy, and bigger differences between atmospheric remote sensing with microwave radiometers and optical astronomy, they share two very important requirements: 1) the need to optimize observing strategy based on an understanding of hardware strengths and weaknesses, and 2) the need to deal with stochastic noise and systematic errors during data analysis.

This book was written for the amateur who may not have the background and observing experience that I brought to the hobby 8 years ago. How can a reader know if they’re ready for this book? Here’s a short litmus test question: do you know the meaning of “differential photometry”? If so, and if you’ve done it, then you’re ready for this book. Bruce L. Gary

Ronald Stoyan, Stefan Binnewies, Susanne Friedrich, "Atlas of the Messier Objects: Highlights of the Deep Sky"
Cambridge University Press | 2008 | ISBN: 0521895545 | 368 pages | PDF | 32,8 MB

The 110 star clusters, nebulae and galaxies of Messier's famous catalog are among the most popular of all the deep sky objects and are beautiful targets for amateur observers of all abilities. This stunning new atlas presents a complete and lively account of all of the Messier objects. Details for each object include a thoroughly researched history of its discovery, historical observations and anecdotes, the latest scientific data detailing its astrophysical findings, and descriptions for observers to view the objects, be it with the naked eye or a large telescope.

This atlas has some of the world's finest color astrophotos, labeled photos pointing to hidden details and neighboring objects, as well as historical sketches by well-known figures alongside new deep sky drawings. Quite simply, this is THE most far-reaching and beautiful reference on the Messier objects there has ever been, and one that no observer should be without!
