Turn Left at Orion
Cambridge University Press | 2000-10-23 | ISBN: 0521781906 | 224 pages | PDF | 5,8 MB

A superb guidebook described in Bookwatch as 'the home astronomer's "bible"', Turn Left at Orion provides all the information beginning amateur astronomers need to observe the Moon, the planets and a whole host of celestial objects. Large format diagrams show these objects exactly as they appear in a small telescope and for each object there is information on the current state of our astronomical knowledge.

Revised and updated, this new edition contains a chapter with ten new spreads describing spectacular deep sky objects visible from the southern hemisphere, and tips on observing the upcoming transits of Venus. It also discusses Dobsonian telescopes, with hints on using personal computers and the Internet as aids for planning an observing session. Also new to this edition are redrawn "Guidepost" figures at the beginning of each season chapter that allow readers to visualize a three-dimensional view of the sky's dome; redesigned seasonal object layouts that provide more space for the naked-eye charts; a new spread on double stars near Boötes has been added to Spring, replacing the "Shrinking Double" spread; and a unique "When and Where to Look" table has been added to the last page, among other new features.

Unlike many guides to the night sky, this book is specifically written for observers using small telescopes. Clear and easy to use, this fascinating book will appeal to skywatchers of all ages and backgrounds. No previous knowledge of astronomy is needed.

The Urban Astronomer's Guide: A Walking Tour of the Cosmos for City Sky Watchers

Publisher: Springer | ISBN: 1846282160 | edition 2006 | PDF | 257 pages | 11,3 mb

Most amateur astronomers yearn to observe more frequently. Many of them, however, live in urban and highly developed suburban areas that are heavily light polluted. Due to this light pollution, they are under the impression that deep sky objects—nebulae, galaxies, star clusters—are either invisible or not worth viewing from home.

This book describes the many objects that can be seen in a bright urban sky, and shows the city or suburban astronomer how to observe object after object, season after season.

Robert W. Argyle "Observing and Measuring Visual Double Stars"

Springer | 2004-01-09 | ISBN: 1852335580 | 326 pages | PDF | 5,3 MB

Double stars are the rule, rather than the exception: our solar system, having a single sun, is in the minority. Orbiting satellites, ground-based observatories and interferometers have all helped discover many hundreds of new pairs - but this has left enormous numbers of wide, faint pairs under-observed or not observed at all. This is where amateur astronomers can help.

Bob Argyle, a professional astronomer at Cambridge University, shows where enthusiastic amateur observers can best direct their efforts. The book caters for the use of every level of equipment, from simple commercial telescopes to micrometers and CCD cameras. Amateur astronomers who have gone beyond "sight-seeing” and want to make a genuine scientific contribution will find this a fascinating and rewarding field - and this book provides all the background and practical information that’s needed.

Astronomer's Computer Companion

No Starch Press | 1999-11-07 | ISBN: 1886411220 | 496 pages | PDF | 7,7 MB

Computers and the Internet can be tremendous resources for the amateur astronomer, whose explorations can and do yield significant new discoveries. In this book, a professional and an amateur astronomer team up to review the most useful astronomical software and explain how to use it to plan observing sessions, track asteroids and comets, determine the phase and location of the moon, figure out the locations of galaxies, and more.

They also discuss educational Web sites and image collections, astronomy-related newsgroups and mailing lists, and ways to use the Internet to control remote-access, high-powered telescopes to conduct more in-depth research.
