TitleA Practical Guide to Lightcurve Photometry and Analysis
Author(s)Warner, Brian D
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2016.
DescriptionXXII, 410 p. 202 illus., 52 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteFor those with access to even a modest telescope and CCD camera, this new and improved guide delivers all the information needed to take part in the scientific study of asteroids and variable stars. New techniques in photometry continue to be refined, and expert Brian Warner covers the developing territory in detail for those both new and experienced. Updated to reflect changes in telescope and CCD technology, it also includes an expanded chapter on the analysis of asteroid lightcurves to cover some of the common pitfalls that lead to incorrect answers as well as how to discover an asteroid satellite via lightcurves. With this information, amateur astronomers can use commercially available equipment to determine the rotation rate, size, and shape of asteroids. Similarly, it is possible to discover the size, temperature, and orbits of stars in binary systems by using this powerful technique. Brian Warner yet again delivers all the material needed for readers to understand the theory, and avoid the practical pitfalls of lightcurve photometry. Detailed examples are given for obtaining data, and of course for the exciting and rewarding task of analyzing the data to determine the physical properties of the objects. It also includes many detailed finder charts with magnitudes for reference and detailed steps on how to go about gathering data for specific projects without misinterpretation. Any college student or amateur astronomer who wants to go beyond mere imaging with a CCD camera and enter the challenging world of "real science" via the lightcurves of asteroids and binary stars will find everything necessary in this updated book.

TitleLune
Author(s)Romagnoli, Edoardo;Confalonieri, Giulio;Bianucci, Piero
PublicationMilano, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Milan, 2010.
Description52 pagg. 16 figg : online resource
Abstract NoteUn'opera unica nel suo genere, nata dall'incontro di due grandi artisti, il fotografo Edoardo Romagnoli e il designer Giulio Confalonieri, recentemente scomparso. Protagonista ?? la Luna, colta dall'obiettivo della macchina fotografica e ritratta attraverso fotografie sorprendenti e di forte impatto emotivo (alcune esposte al Guggenheim Museum di Venezia). Grafica e fotografia si susseguono e si inseguono, senza interferire l'una con l'altra. Un "passo a due", dove ogni pagina di grafica introduce una pagina di fotografia e, dopo ogni fotografia, appare una pagina di grande effetto grafico. La meraviglia ?? forte e il ritmo incalzante. Il legame ?? in copertina: una grande "E" (congiunzione) a rappresentare il rapporto forte tra design e fotografia, immagini e grafica, ma allo stesso tempo anche il profondo piacere dello stare insieme a parlare, fare e disfare, rifare e riparlare, dei due principali attori di quest'opera, il designer e il fotografo. Il tutto accompagnato dal contributo di Piero Bianucci, scrittore, giornalista e grande divulgatore, che conduce attraverso le affinit?? e le contrapposizioni delle due facce dell'opera (richiamo naturale alle due facce della Luna): luce/ombra, chiaro/scuro, giorno/notte, vita/morte, bianco/nero. Un testo che, partendo dall'ambivalenza mitologica della Luna, arriva a parlare della sua luce e del suo colore/non colore, del paradosso del plenilunio (mai visibile, a rigore, perch?? quando Sole-Terra-Luna sono perfettamente allineati si ha una eclisse totale di Luna), della Luna in rapporto alla scansione del tempo e degli influssi veri e presunti di questo astro che da sempre ha affascinato l'uomo

TitleBreakthrough! : 100 Astronomical Images That Changed the World
Author(s)Gendler, Robert;GaBany, R. Jay
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionXIII, 171 p. 101 illus., 73 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis unique volume by two renowned astrophotographers unveils the science and history behind 100 of the most significant astronomical images of all time. The authors have carefully selected their list of images from across time and technology to bring to the reader the most relevant photographic images spanning all eras of modern astronomical history. Based on scientific evidence today we have a basic notion of how Earth and the universe came to be. The road to this knowledge was paved with 175 years of astronomical images acquired by the coupling of two revolutionary technologies ??? the camera and telescope. With ingenuity and determination humankind would quickly embrace these technologies to tell the story of the cosmos and unravel its mysteries. This book presents in pictures and words a photographic chronology of our aspiration to understand the universe. From the first fledgling attempts to photograph the Moon, planets, and stars to the marvels of orbiting observatories that record the cosmos at energies beyond the range of human vision, astronomers have always relied on images to "break through" to the next level of understanding. A subset of these breakthrough images has profound significance in documenting some of the greatest milestones in modern astronomy

TitleTreasures of the Southern Sky
Author(s)Gendler, Robert;Christensen, Lars Lindberg;Malin, David
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2011.
DescriptionXXX, 190 p. 148 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteIn these pages, the reader can follow the engaging saga of astronomical exploration in the southern hemisphere, in a modern merger of aesthetics, science, and a story of human endeavor. This book is truly a celebration of southern skies. ??Jerry Bonnell, Editor - Astronomy Picture of the Day The southern sky became accessible to scientific scrutiny only a few centuries ago, after the first European explorers ventured south of the equator. Modern observing and imaging techniques have since revealed what seems like a new Universe, previously hidden below the horizon, a fresh astronomical bounty of beauty and knowledge uniquely different from the northern sky. The authors have crafted a book that brings this hidden Universe to all, regardless of location or latitude. Treasures of the Southern Sky celebrates the remarkable beauty and richness of the southern sky in words and with world-class imagery. In part, a photographic anthology of deep sky wonders south of the celestial equator, this book also celebrates the human story of southern astronomy with an engaging and detailed history of key contributors to southern sky exploration. The accompanying text provides the reader with intriguing facts and useful information about the featured objects. The volume is arranged by southern hemisphere season and brings to the printed page many of the most provocative and beautiful astronomical images of our time, many in print for the first time. The collection of imagery covers a full range of deep sky astronomical objects, including the familiar and iconic as well as those that are more obscure but no less intriguing. Masterful, state of the art professional and amateur astrophotography highlights the authors' carefully selected deep sky "treasures." DUST JACKET: The beauty and richness of the southern night sky is legendary. From southern latitudes the finest globular clusters in the sky are visible to the unaided eye, as are the nearest galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds. The brightest part of the Milky Way passes overhead during the southern winter and the nearest bright star as well as the legendary asterism known as the Southern Cross are both observable throughout the year. Despite these stunning highlights, the southern sky has received has received less attention than its northern counterparty, and fewer photographs exist of its lesser known, yet equally stunning and intriguing objects. This visual anthology features striking photographic portraits of the most celebrated to the more obscure southern astronomical objects. Carefully selected world-class images have been assembled using the latest digital methods, revealing these southern gems in ways never before seen. To provide a context, the pictures capture the sky in??variety of scales, from the wide vistas seen through hobby telescopes to the tiny fields relayed in exquisitely rich detail by the powerful optics of the largest professional telescopes, including the Hubbel Space Telescope and ESO's telescopes. The beauty of the night sky is on display in vivid color and dazzling detail. The presentation is further enhanced by a detailed history of southern sky exploration and lucid text that describes the southern night-sky wonders in ways that are engaging and non-technical

TitleAstrophotography on the Go : Using Short Exposures with Light Mounts
Author(s)Ashley, Joseph
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionX, 320 p. 111 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteNo longer are heavy, sturdy, expensive mounts and tripods required to photograph deep space. With today's advances in technology, all that is required is an entry-DSLR and an entry level GoTo telescope. Here is all of the information needed to start photographing the night sky without buying expensive tracking mounts. By using multiple short exposures and combining them with mostly ???freeware??? computer programs, the effect of image rotation can be minimized to a point where it is undetectable in normal astrophotography, even for a deep-sky object such as a galaxy or nebula. All the processes, techniques, and equipment needed to use inexpensive, lightweight altazimuth and equatorial mounts and very short exposures photography to image deep space objects are explained, step-by-step, in full detail, supported by clear, easy to understand graphics and photographs. ?? Currently available lightweight mounts and tripods are identified and examined from an economic versus capability perspective to help users determine what camera, telescope, and mount is the best fit for them. A similar analysis is presented for entry-level telescopes and mounts sold as bundled packages by the telescope manufacturers. This book lifts the veil of mystery from the creation of deep space photographs and makes astrophotography affordable and accessible to most amateur astronomers
