TitleEyes on the sky: A Spectrum of Telescope
Author(s)Francis Graham-Smith
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2016.
Descriptionxv, 235p.
Abstract NoteFour centuries ago, Galileo first turned a telescope to look up at the night sky. His discoveries opened the cosmos, revealing the geometry and dynamics of the solar system. Today's telescopic equipment, stretching over the whole spectrum from visible light to radio and millimetre astronomy, through infrared to ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays, has again transformed our understanding of the whole Universe. In this book Francis Graham-Smith explains how this technology can be engaged to give us a more in-depth picture of the nature of the universe. Looking at both ground-based telescopes and telescopes on spacecraft, he analyses their major discoveries, from planets and pulsars to cosmology. Large research teams and massive data handling are necessary, but the excitement of discovery is increasingly shared by a growing public, who can even join in some of the analysis by remote computer techniques. Observational astronomy has become international. All major projects are now partnerships; most notably the Square Kilometre Array, which will involve astronomers from over 100 countries and will physically exist in several of them. Covering the history and development of telescopes from Galileo to the present day, Eyes on the Sky traces what happens when humankind looks up.

TitleClassic telescopes: A Guide to Collecting, Restoring, and Using Telescopes of Yesteryear
Author(s)Neil English
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Descriptionxv, 239p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteClassic Telescopes explores the exciting world of telescopes past, as well as the possibilities involved in acquiring these instruments. What are classic telescopes? First, the book takes a look at the more traditional telescopes built by the great instrument makers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the dynastic houses founded by the likes of John Dollond, Alvan Clark, Thomas Cooke & Sons and Carl Zeiss, plus some lesser-known luminaries, including John Brashear, John Calver, and Henry Fitz.

TitleUniverse in a mirror: The saga of the Hubble Space Telescope and the visionaries who built it
Author(s)Robert Zimmerman
PublicationPrinceton, Princeton University Press, 2008.
Descriptionxv, 287p.
Abstract NoteThe Hubble Space Telescope has produced the most stunning images of the cosmos humanity has ever seen. It has transformed our understanding of the universe around us, revealing new information about its age and evolution, the life cycle of stars, and the very existence of black holes, among other startling discoveries. The Universe in a Mirror tells the story of this telescope and the visionaries responsible for its extraordinary accomplishments.

TitleNext generation space telescope: Visiting a time when galaxies were young
Author(s)H.S. Stockman (ed.)
PublicationWashington, Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, 1997.
Description163p.
Contents NoteIn the spring and summer of 1996, three independant teams studied the feasibility of a large aperture space telescope to follow the Hubble Space Telescope. The scientific goals for the telescope had been laid out in a report by the HST & Beyond Committee, a group appointed by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy to consider the needs of the astronomical community after the nominal end of the HST mission in 2005. This report presents the findings of these three teams and the technological roadmap which will guide us to the successful development of the NGST over the next decade.

TitleCelestial Objects for Modern Telescopes: Volume 2:Practical Amateur Astronomy
Author(s)Michael A. Covington
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2002.
Description268p.
Abstract NoteBased on field notes made by the author during his own career as an amateur astronomer, this unique guide covers both the traditional and novel approaches to studying the night sky. In addition to the more standard techniques, it discusses the latest modern resources available to today's astronomer, such as personal computers, the Internet, and computerized telescopes. It includes practical advice on aspects such as site selection and weather; provides the reader with detailed instructions for observing the Sun, Moon, planets, and all types of deep-sky objects; and it introduces newer specialities such as satellite observing and the use of astronomical databases. The book concludes with detailed information about 200 stars, clusters, nebulae, and galaxies, suitable for viewing with modest-sized telescopes under suburban conditions. Written to complement How to Use a Computerized Telescope, this book will also appeal to astronomers with more traditional equipment.
