Amateur Telescope Making in the Internet Age: Finding Parts, Getting Help, and More (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Springer; 1st Edition. edition (October 1, 2010) | ISBN: 1441964142 | 204 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Building an astronomical telescope offers the amateur astronomer an exciting challenge, with the possibility of ending up with a far bigger and better telescope than could have been afforded otherwise. In the past, the starting point has always been the grinding and polishing of at least the primary mirror, a difficult and immensely time-consuming process. But now that the Internet has brought us together in a global village, purchasing off-the-shelf goods such as parabolic mirrors, eyepieces, lenses, and telescope tubes, is possible. There are also a vast number of used mirrors and lenses out there, and it is now possible to track them down almost anywhere in the world.

Online stores and auction houses have facilitated commerce regarding all sorts of useful optical components at a reasonable price. This is a book about making telescopes from available parts. It provides guidance on where to look and what to look for in selecting items useful for telescope making and explains how to assemble these components to produce an excellent instrument on a tight budget. At one time, many amateurs made their own telescopes from home-made parts. In today's rushed world, that has almost become a lost art.

The Internet offers a wonderful alternative to either buying a pricey scope fully assembled or making your own from scratch.

Martin Mobberley, “Hunting and Imaging Comets (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)"

Springer | 2010-10-11 | ISBN: 1441969047 | 394 pages | PDF | 19 Mb

For many astronomers, the holy grail of observation is to discover a comet, not least because comets always bear the name of their discoverer! Hunting and Imaging Comets was written for comet hunters and digital imagers who want to discover, rediscover, monitor, and make pictures of comets using astronomical CCD cameras and DSLRs. The old days of the purely visual comet hunter are pretty much over, but this is not to say that amateurs have lost interest in finding comets.

The books also covers the discovery of comet fragments in the SOHO image data, CCD monitoring of older comets prone to violent outbursts, the imaging of new NEOs (Near Earth Objects) that have quite often been revealed as comets - not asteroids - by amateur astronomers, and the finding of recent comets impacting Jupiter.

The Science and Art of Using Astronomical Telescopes
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York Inc. | Pages: 411 | 2009 | ISBN: 0387764690 | PDF | 11,5 MB

Amateur astronomers have to start somewhere. Most begin by buying a modest astronomical telescope and getting to know the night sky. After a while, many want to move on to the next stage, but this can be problematic. The magazines advertise a mass of commercially-made equipment – some of it very expensive – which can represent a major financial outlay. The trick is to choose the right equipment, and then use it to its fullest extent.

Observing Skills: The Science and Art of using Astronomical Telescopes provides the required information. First, it explains how to get the best from entry-level equipment (that upgrade may not even be needed for a year or two!). Second, it explains how to select equipment that is at the ‘next level’, and describes how use more advanced telescopes and accessories.

Peter Grego. "Astronomical Cybersketching:Observational Drawing with PDAs and Tablet PCs"

(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Springer; 1 edition | 2009 | ISBN: 0387853502 | 224 pages | PDF | 6 Mb

This book is truly unique. It is a book that has become necessary because of advancing computer technology. It outlines the techniques involved in making observational sketches and more detailed ‘scientific’ drawings of a wide variety of astronomical subjects using modern digital equipment; primarily PDAs and tablet PCs. Choosing hardware and software is discussed at the beginning, followed by the techniques involved in amateur astronomers producing finished drawings. Completing and enhancing these drawings at the desktop PC is also covered.

No other book on the market deals with the subject of digital observational drawing – not even touching upon it briefly. People are increasingly ‘digitising’ their lifestyles, and amateur astronomers of the future will not have to contend with soggy paper and smudgy pencils while juggling a red torch at the eyepiece! Those who have seen the techniques that the author has pioneered, and which he describes in detail in Astronomical Cybersketching, have universally commented that "cybersketching" – the use of handheld PCs with touch sensitive screens that can be used for drawing and other input – is the future of making records of visual observations of astronomical subjects, and is already taking its place alongside modern CCD, digicam and webcam imaging techniques.

Frederick R. Chromey, "To Measure the Sky: An Introduction to Observational Astronomy"

Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 0521747686 | July 31, 2010 | 460 pages | PDF | 4.9 MB

With a lively yet rigorous and quantitative approach, Frederick R. Chromey introduces the fundamental topics in optical observational astronomy for undergraduates. Focussing on the basic principles of light detection, telescope optics, coordinate systems and data analysis, students are introduced to modern astronomical observation techniques and measurements. Cutting-edge technologies such as advanced CCD detectors and adaptive optics are presented through the physical principles on which they are based, helping students understand the power of modern space and ground-based telescopes, and the motivations and limitations of future development. Discussion of statistics and measurement uncertainty enables students to confront the important questions of data quality.

With a purposeful structure and clear approach, this is an essential resource for all students of observational astronomy. It explains the theoretical foundations for observational practices and reviews essential physics to support students' mastery of the subject. Student understanding is strengthened through over 120 exercises and problems.

Jack Martin, "A Spectroscopic Atlas of Bright Stars: A Pocket Field Guide"

Springer | 2009 | ISBN: 1441907041 | 205 pages | PDF | 14,5 MB

A Spectroscopic Atlas of the Stars: A Pocket Field Guide is a standard reference book for all amateur astronomers interested in practical spectroscopy or spectrography. For the first time in one place, it identifies more than 70 (northern hemisphere) bright stars that are suitable observational targets for both amateurs and astronomy students.

Finder charts are provided for locating these sometimes-familiar stars. Data for each star includes labelled stellar spectra, a spectral profile with spectral lines identified. These are conveniently laid out on a single page, opposite tables of spectroscopic properties, and lines and wavelengths identified.

This is the first Spectral Atlas designed for amateur astronomers. It is equally relevant to college undergraduates, being intended to familiarize astronomers of any age and level of knowledge with labelled stellar spectra and their different properties. It contains much information about stars which is hard to find or inaccessible to most people.
