TitleGuide to observing deep-sky objects: A complete global resource for astronomers
Author(s)Jeff A. Farinacci
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2008.
Descriptionix, 196p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteGuide to Observing Deep-Sky Objects is an invaluable reference for all amateur astronomers. The book contains, for each constellation, (1) a star chart showing the Bayer labels, (2) a table for many of the stars in the constellation, along with their positions and magnitudes, and (3) a table of the major deep-sky objects in the constellation, with relevant observational data. Facing pages provide unique year-long graphs that show when the constellation is visible in the sky, which allows the user to quickly determine whether a given constellation can be seen, and when the best time to see it will be.

TitleAstronomy of the milky way : Observer's Guide to the Northern and Souther Sky
Author(s)Michael Inglis
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2004.
Descriptionxiii, 242p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteOne of the wonders of the universe we live in is the Milky Way. It spans the entire sky and can be seen every night of the year from anywhere on Earth. This is the first book that deals specifically with what can be seen within the Milky Way from a practical observer's point of view. Astronomy of the Milky Way covers every constellation that the Milky Way passes through, and describes in detail the many objects that can be found therein, including stars, double and multiple stars, emission nebulae, planetary nebulae, dark nebulae and supernovae remnants, open and galactic clusters, and galaxies. It also describes the one thing that is often left out of observing guides - the amazing star clouds of the Milky Way itself. It is one of a two-volume set that deal with the entire Milky Way - this second volume looks at what can be seen predominantly from the Southern skies. In addition to the descriptive text there are many star charts and maps, as well as the latest up-to-date images made by observatories around the world and in space, as well as images taken by amateur astronomers. Equipped with this book, an amateur astronomer can go out on any clear night of the year and observe the galaxy we live in - The Milky Way.

TitleUrban astronomer's guide: A Walking Tour of the Cosmos for City Sky Watchers
Author(s)Rod Mollise
PublicationLondon, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2006.
Descriptionvii, 257p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract Noteany amateur astronomers live in urban and highly developed suburban areas, and many of them believe that they can’t observe deep-sky objects from such light-polluted locations. But it isn’t true. Given the right techniques, urban astronomers can routinely observe deep-sky objects night after night – something most of us would never do if it involved driving miles into the country to find a dark site. Rod Mollise has observed the entire Messier list from his urban backyard, without high-tech equipment, using only commercially-made telescopes and simple accessories. This is a guide to good deep-sky astronomy under bad skies. There are literally hundreds of spectacular objects to be seen from the average urban site. After dealing with equipment, locations and even urban safety, Rod invites you to join him on his virtual "walking tours" of the night sky, with physical and observational descriptions, at-the-eyepiece drawings, and photographs.

TitleSeeing stars: The Night Sky Through Small Telescopes
Author(s)Chris Kitchin;Robert W. Forrest
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 1998.
Descriptionxiii, 186p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteSeeing Stars is written for astronomers, regardless of the depth of their theoretical knowledge, who are taking their first steps in observational astronomy. Chris Kitchin and Bob Forrest - both professional astronomers - take a conducted tour of the night sky and suggest suitable observing programmes for everyone from beginners to experts. How is this book different? We are all familiar with the beautiful images of planets and galaxies obtained by spacecraft and giant telescopes - but what can you really see with a small telescope? What should you expect from a small refractor or reflector? And what is the effect of observing from a site near a city? The answers are all here, with many photographs that will illustrate exactly what can be seen with different instruments (everything from the naked eye to a 300mm telescope) - and from different locations.

TitleCelestial delight: The Best Astronomical Events Through 2020
Author(s)Francis Reddy
Edition3rd
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2012.
Descriptionxv, 423p.
Abstract NoteCelestial Delights is the essential 'TV Guide' for the sky. Through extensive graphics integrated with an eight-year-long calendar of sky events, it provides a look at "don't miss" sky events, mostly for naked-eye and binocular observing. It is organized by ease of observation – lunar phases and the brighter planets come first, with solar eclipses, the aurora, and comets coming later. This third edition also includes a hefty dose of sky lore, astronomical history, and clear overviews of current science. It provides a handy reference to upcoming naked-eye events, with information broken out in clear and simple diagrams and tables that are cross-referenced against a detailed almanac for each year covered. This book puts a variety of information all in one place, presents it in a friendly way that does not require prior in-depth astronomical knowledge, and provides the context and historical background for understanding events that astronomy software or web sites lack.

TitleUsing the Meade ETX: 100 Objects You Can Really See with the Mighty ETX
Author(s)Mike Weasner
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2002.
Descriptionxiv, 208p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteIn 1996 Meade, the world's largest astronomical telescope manufacturer, introduced the ETX, a low-cost and genuinely portable instrument capable of results close to the theoretical limits of optical performance. Since then several different models have been introduced, most of them controlled by on-board computers that automatically point the telescope at objects selected from a database of 12,000. Unfortunately not all these objects are visible when looking through the ETX! (They are included because they can be imaged with special equipment.) Mike Weasner is a world expert on the ETX range, and describes the "best" 100 objects to start with, and offers hints and tips about using and looking after the telescope to get the best possible results.
