TitleTo measure the sky: An Introduction to Observational Astronomy
Author(s)Frederick Chromey
Edition2nd ed.
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2016.
Descriptionxiv, 461p
Abstract NoteWith a lively yet rigorous and quantitative approach, Frederick R. Chromey introduces the fundamental topics in optical observational astronomy for undergraduates. Focussing on the basic principles of light detection, telescope optics, coordinate systems and data analysis, students are introduced to modern astronomical observation techniques and measurements. Cutting-edge technologies such as advanced CCD detectors and adaptive optics are presented through the physical principles on which they are based, helping students understand the power of modern space and ground-based telescopes, and the motivations and limitations of future development. Discussion of statistics and measurement uncertainty enables students to confront the important questions of data quality. With a purposeful structure and clear approach, this is an essential resource for all students of observational astronomy. It explains the theoretical foundations for observational practices and reviews essential physics to support students' mastery of the subject.

TitleVisual astronomy under dark skies: A New Approach to Observing Deep Space
Author(s)Antony Cooke
PublicationLondon, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2005.
Descriptionx, 180p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteModern astronomical telescopes, along with other advances in technology, have brought the deep sky – star clusters, nebulae and the galaxies – within visual reach of amateur astronomers. It isn’t necessary to image deep-sky objects in order to see them; you look at them in real-time by using modern observing techniques and enhancement technology. The first requirement is a truly dark observing site. Given a location with clear, dark night skies everything else follows… this book contains all you need to know about what to observe, how to get superb views of faint and distant astronomical objects, and how to use the best of today’s commercial equipment for visual observing.

TitleVisual astronomy in the suburbs: A Guide to Spectacular Viewing
Author(s)Antony Cooke
PublicationLondon, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2003.
Descriptionxii, 265p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteMost amateur astronomers, because they live in or near cities, have to carry out their observing from relatively light-polluted sites. It is possible to reduce the effects of a poor location by the use of CCD imaging, but many observers prefer to look at astronomical objects rather than photograph them. Skill, observing techniques, and modern technology - such as image intensifiers - can now be used to astonishing effect to observe the night sky in real-time. Illustrating the book with images and some of his own superb drawings, Antony Cooke explains how to observe some of the most spectacular objects from less than perfect observing sites.

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.

TitleAstronomical equipment for amateurs
Author(s)Martin Mobberley
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 1999.
Descriptionxiii, 266p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteTelescopes - refractors and reflectors - are the main items of equipment used by almost every amateur astronomer. The purpose of astronomical telescopes is to collect and focus more light than the human eye can, forming an image that can be viewed, photographed, or analysed. Astronomical Equipment for Amateurs makes buying and using both telescopes and their ancillary instruments easy for astronomers of all abilities. It begins by looking at the advantages and disadvantages of the basic types of refractors, reflectors, mountings and accessories. Observation techniques are also included, along with the use of filters, (colour, anti-pollution and nebula), types of photography (piggy-back, prime focus and eyepiece projection), and also CCD imaging (including types of CCD camera and their advantages and disadvantages compared to photography). Martin Mobberley provides a fascinating insight into astronomical software.
