Visual Astronomy Under Dark Skies

A New Approach to Observing Deep Space

Visual Astronomy Under Dark Skies
Add to cart
US$ 44.95
Modern astronomical telescopes, along with other advances in technology, have brought the deep sky - star clusters, nebulae and the galaxies - within reach of amateur astronomers. And it isn't even necessary to image many of these deep-sky objects in order to see them; they are within reach of visual observers using modern techniques and enhancement technology. The first requirement is truly dark skies; if you are observing from a light-polluted environment you need Tony Cooke's book, "Visual Astronomy in the Suburbs". Given a site with clear, dark night skies everything else follows - this book will provide the reader with everything he needs to know about what to observe, and using some of today's state-of-the-art technique and commercial equipment, how to get superb views of faint and distant astronomical objects.
