TitleAmateur telescope making in the internet age: Finding Parts, Getting Help, and More
Author(s)Robert L. Clark
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Descriptionxi, 204p
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteThe Internet Age is changing everything about human invention and the use of technology. The change has been compared to that of the introduction of printing. Making your own telescope isn’t what it used to be, either, thanks partly to the Internet. The old days of grinding and polishing are gone – unless you want to do it! You can now assemble a great instrument from a wide range of affordable Internet-available components, new or used. The Internet is the new parts “junkyard,” with stuff from all over the world for you to pick through, day or night. In this book you will find out what’s generally available and how to access it. You will learn how to evaluate optical components and combine them from diverse Internet sources. You will get many ideas on how to make the parts that you don’t buy or scrounge and how to restore old lenses and mirrors. And you will learn some elementary physics of designing ergonomic – comfortable – telescopes. Navigating your way around the possibilities is easy using this valuable and timely resource. With Robert Clark’s help you can get the best that the Internet has to offer.

TitleChoosing and using a Dobsonian telescope
Author(s)Neil English
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Descriptionxiii, 232p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract Noten the 1980’s, on the sidewalks of San Francisco, amateur astronomer John Dobson began showing throngs of people how to build and use large aperture scopes, often from scraps. The Dobsonian,‘Dobs,’ are now the best-selling large telescopes in the world. There are a great variety of different Dob styles, ranging from elaborate and decorative creations to simple mass market designs, and new models appear all the time. In this title, Neil English presents the ultimate guide to buying and using a commercial Dobsonian for recreational astronomy. He provides in-depth accounts of the various models (plus accessories) on the market – both economy and premium – together with describing the wealth of innovations that amateurs have made to their Dobs to optimize their performance in the field.

TitleReal astronomy with small telescopes: Step-by-Step Activities for Discovery
Author(s)Michael K. Gainer
PublicationLondon, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2007.
Descriptionxvi, 148p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteReal Astronomy with Small Telescopes tells you everything you’ll need to know about how to get started on "real" astronomy using a small telescope (and ideally a digital camera), and make a real contribution to our scientific knowledge. This book is the necessary introduction to real astronomy – derived from the author’s many years of experience in teaching the subject – that can be your starting point for serious work. Here, the emphasis is on what you can do with a small telescope, rather than just on what you can see through it.

TitleNew amateur astronomer
Author(s)Martin Mobberley
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2004.
Descriptionix, 229p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteAmateur astronomy has changed beyond recognition in less than two decades. The reason is, of course, technology. Affordable high-quality telescopes, computer-controlled 'go to' mountings, autoguiders, CCD cameras, video, and (as always) computers and the Internet, are just a few of the advances that have revolutionized astronomy for the twenty-first century. Martin Mobberley first looks at the basics before going into an in-depth study of what’s available commercially. He then moves on to the revolutionary possibilities that are open to amateurs, from imaging, through spectroscopy and photometry, to patrolling for near-earth objects - the search for comets and asteroids that may come close to, or even hit, the earth. The New Amateur Astronomer is a road map of the new astronomy, equally suitable for newcomers who want an introduction, or old hands who need to keep abreast of innovations.

TitleGo-to telescope under suburban skies
Author(s)Neale Monks
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2005.
Descriptionxxi, 260p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteThis book does not tell you how to use your Go-to telescope. Your manual will help you do that. It tells you what to look for in the deep sky and why, and what equipment to best see it with. Organized broadly by what is best for viewing in the northern hemisphere in different seasons, Monks further divides the sights of each season into groupings such as "Showpiece Objects," "Interesting Deep Sky Objects," and "Obscure and Challenging Deep Sky Objects." He also tells what objects are visible even in light-polluted skies. So armed with your go-to telescope, find an ideal viewing site or set up your telescope in your own backyard. Either way, you’re in for some fun!

TitleNexStar user's guide
Author(s)Michael W. Swanson
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2004.
Descriptionxviii, 296p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteCelestron’s NexStar telescopes were introduced in 1999, beginning with their first computer controlled "go to” model, a 5-inch. More models appeared in quick succession, and Celestron’s new range made it one of the two dominant manufacturers of affordable "go to” telescopes. Michael Swanson’s online discussions with literally thousands of NexStar owners made it clear that there was a desperate need for a book such as this - one that provides a complete, detailed guide to buying, using and maintaining NexStar telescopes. Although this book is highly comprehensive, it is suitable for beginners - there is a chapter on "Astronomy Basics” - and experts alike.

TitleAstronomy with small telescopes: Up to 5-inch, 125 mm
Author(s)Stephen F. Tonkin (ed.)
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2001.
Descriptionxiii, 157p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteSmall telescopes have a lot to recommend them. Cost is of course a consideration, but their most positive feature is sheer portability. Some manufacturers have tried to make large telescopes more portable (with mixed success), but the opposite approach, that of making small telescopes more effective, is what this book is all about. Good 2-inch (60mm) telescopes are now available for beginners, and major American manufacturers now offer small, affordable computer-controlled instruments that are capable of superb results. Stephen Tonkin has gathered the experience of users of small telescopes to provide an insight into just what is possible - for newcomers to astronomy or experienced observers who simply want to use a small, really portable telescope.

TitleAmateur telescope making
Author(s)Stephen F. Tonkin (ed.)
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 1999.
Descriptionxii, 259p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteMany amateur astronomers make their own instruments, either because of financial considerations or because they are just interested. Amateur Telescope Making offers a variety of designs for telescopes, mounts and drives which are suitable for the home-constructor. The designs range from simple to advanced, but all are within the range of a moderately well-equipped home workshop. The book not only tells the reader what he can construct, but also what it is sensible to construct given what time is available commercially. Thus each chapter begins with reasons for undertaking the project, then looks at theoretical consideration before finishing with practical instructions and advice. An indication is given as to the skills required for the various projects. Appendices list reputable sources of (mail order) materials and components. The telescopes and mounts range from "shoestring" (very cheap) instruments to specialist devices that are unavailable commercially.
