TitleThe observing guide to the Messier marathon : a handbook and atlas
Author(s)Don Machholz
Description1 online resource (xiii, 157 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe Messier Catalogue is a list of one hundred and ten galaxies, star clusters and nebulae, and includes many of the brightest and best-known objects in the sky. Amateur astronomers can challenge their abilities by attempting to find all the objects on the list in one night, and thus complete the Messier Marathon. This book contains over 90 easy-to-use star maps to guide the observer from one object to the next, and provides tips for a successful night of observing. The book also tells the story of the eighteenth-century astronomer, Charles Messier, and how he came to compile his extensive catalogue. This complete guide to the Messier Marathon will help the amateur astronomer to observe the Messier Objects throughout the year, using a small telescope or even a pair of binoculars

TitleThe Cambridge photographic star atlas
Author(s)Axel Mellinger, Ronald Stoyan
Description1 online resource (1 atlas (ix, 176 pages)) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteUsing the latest methods in digital photography and image processing, The Cambridge Photographic Star Atlas presents the whole sky through large-scale photographic images with corresponding charts. Each double-page spread shows a section of the night sky and is accompanied by an inverted chart highlighting and naming double stars, variable stars, open clusters, galactic and planetary nebulae, globular clusters and galaxies. The 82 large-scale charts, with a scale of 1?? per cm, identify over 1500 deep-sky objects and 2500 stars. Providing a giant mosaic of the entire sky, this unique atlas is unparalleled in detail and completeness, making it indispensable for visual observers and astrophotographers

TitleThe Caldwell objects
Author(s)Stephen James O'Meara ; with additional images by Mario Motta
EditionSecond edition
Description1 online resource (xix, 556 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe Caldwell Catalogue, compiled by the late Sir Patrick Moore (1923???2012), has delighted amateur astronomers worldwide since its publication in 1995. Twenty years on, Stephen James O'Meara revisits his guide to these 109 deep-sky delights, breathing new life into them and the 20 additional observing targets included as an appendix. This second edition retains O'Meara's detailed visual descriptions and sketches, accompanied by stunning new images taken by amateur photographer Mario Motta and observations by Magda Streicher. The astrophysical descriptions have been updated to account for the many advances in our understanding of the objects, not least due to an armada of space-borne observatories and the new technologies used in large ground-based telescopes. Ideal for observers who have completed the Messier objects and are looking for their next challenge, Deep-Sky Companions: The Caldwell Objects is a fitting tribute from a renowned visual observer to one of astronomy's most famous personalities

TitleThe stars : their structure and evolution
Author(s)Roger J. Tayler
Description1 online resource (xiii, 241 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThis textbook gives a clear account of the manner in which knowledge in many branches of physics such as gravitation, thermodynamics, atomic physics and nuclear physics can be combined to gain an understanding of the structure and evolution of stars. A major aim is to present the subject as one in which advances are still being made. The first half is an account of the observational properties of stars and a discussion of the equations that govern their structure. The second part discusses recent theoretical work on stellar evolution. The successes of the theory are stressed, but attention is also drawn to phenomena that are not completely understood. This is a new edition of a widely-used textbook first published in 1970. New topics include mass loss from stars and close binary stars

TitleObserving and cataloguing nebulae and star clusters : from Herschel to Dreyer's New general catalogue
Author(s)Wolfgang Steinicke
Description1 online resource (xi, 648 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe New General Catalogue, originally created in 1888, is the source for referencing bright nebulae and star clusters, both in professional and amateur astronomy. With 7840 entries, it is the most-used historical catalogue of observational astronomy, and NGC numbers are commonly used today. However, the fascinating history of the discovery, observation, description and cataloguing of nebulae and star clusters in the nineteenth century has largely gone untold, until now. This well-researched book is the first comprehensive historical study of the NGC, and is an important resource to all those with an interest in the history of modern astronomy and visual deep-sky observing. It covers the people, observatories, instruments and methods involved in nineteenth-century visual deep-sky observing, as well as prominent deep-sky objects. The book also compares the NGC to modern object data, demonstrating how important the NGC is in observational astronomy today

TitleCircumstellar media in the late stages of stellar evolution : proceedings of the 34th Herstmonceux conference, held in Cambridge, July 12-16, 1993
Author(s)edited by R.E.S. Clegg, I.R. Stevens, W.P.S. Meikle
Description1 online resource (xiv, 345 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteIn the last throes of their lives, how do low- and high-mass stars interact with their immediate surroundings? How does the circumstellar medium affect the shape of a nebula? How are supernovae affected by a dense medium? And what do we understand of how stellar winds interact with their environments? These and many other exciting issues are addressed in these proceedings, from the 34th Herstmonceux conference, held in Cambridge. Highlights of developments in the field covered in this volume include the latest observational results that show how various types of stellar ejecta differ in shape, and a unified view of the physical processes involved; as well as the latest results on the media around supernovae 1987A and 1993J. This timely volume provides review articles that serve both as an excellent introduction for graduate students and a handy reference for researchers; and up-to-date research papers for those who want to keep abreast of developments in the field

TitleThe gravitational million-body problem
Author(s)Douglas Heggie, Piet Hut
Description1 online resource (xiv, 357 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe globular star clusters of the Milky Way contain hundreds of thousands of stars held together by gravitational interactions, and date from the time when the Milky Way was forming. This 2003 text describes the theory astronomers need for studying globular star clusters. The gravitational million-body problem is an idealised model for understanding the dynamics of a cluster with a million stars. After introducing the million-body problem from various view-points, the book systematically develops the tools needed for studying the million-body problems in nature, and introduces the most important theoretical models. Including a comprehensive treatment of few-body interactions, and developing an intuitive but quantitative understanding of the three-body problem, the book introduces numerical methods, relevant software, and current problems. Suitable for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics and astronomy, this text also has important applications in the fields of theoretical physics, computational science and mathematics

TitleA skywatcher's year
Author(s)Jeff Kanipe
Description1 online resource (xiv, 189 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteHave you ever wondered what that bright point of light twinkling near the horizon is, or just when you can expect to see the best shooting stars of the year? A Skywatcher's Year has answers to these and other questions about what is visible in the night sky throughout the year. Through 52 articles arranged week by week, A Skywatcher's Year guides you to celestial events and phenomena that occur or are visible with the naked eye and binoculars for each week of the year. It acquaints you not only with up-to-date astronomical information on stars, nebulae, meteors, the Milky Way, and galaxies, but also conveys the beauty and wonder of the night sky. Covering both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere, A Skywatcher's Year helps readers find prominent stars and constellations, bright star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies, and explains how and when to observe prominent annual meteor showers
