  • Galaxies in Turmoilby Christopher R. Kitchin

    Springer 2007; US$ 39.95

    Active galaxies (including Quasars, QSOs, Radio galaxies, BL Lacs, Blazars, LINERS, ULIRGS, Seyfert galaxies, Starburst galaxies, and N galaxies) are a major field of astronomical research. This work aims to provide an account of active galaxies that is appropriate to the background knowledge of amateur astronomers. more...

  • Guide to Observing Deep-sky Objectsby Jeff Farinacci

    Springer 2007; US$ 29.95

    Suitable for various amateur astronomers, this book contains, for each constellation, a star chart showing the Bayer labels, a table for many of the stars in the constellation along with their positions and magnitudes, and a table of the major deep-sky objects in the constellation with relevant observational data. more...

  • Setting-up a Small Observatoryby David Arditti

    Springer 2007; US$ 29.95

    Provides information about smaller-scale observatories, and how to set one up. This book covers the details of design, siting and construction - once a basic type has been decided upon. It also considers the aesthetics of amateur observatories - fitting them in with family and neighbors, and disguising them as common garden buildings if necessary. more...

  • Heating Versus Cooling in Galaxies and Clusters of Galaxiesby Gabriel W. Pratt; Peter Schucker; Hans Bohringer; Alexis A. Finoguenov

    Springer 2007; US$ 139.00

    The present volume is the record of a recent topical conference on the interplay between heating and cooling processes in galaxies and clusters of galaxies. The volume documents recent progress in our understanding of the dense central regions of these objects. Chapters detail recent results from multiwavelength observations and advances in numerical... more...

  • Short-period Binary Starsby Eugene F. Milone; Denis A. Leahy; David W. Hobill

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    Short-period binaries run the gamut from widely separated stars to black-hole pairs; in between are systems that include neutron stars and white dwarfs, and partially evolved systems such as tidally distorted and over-contact systems. These objects represent stages of evolution of binary stars, and their degrees of separation provide critical clues... more...

  • Mapping the Galaxy and Nearby Galaxiesby Keiichi Wada; Francoise Combes

    Springer 2007; US$ 299.00

    This is a proceedings book of the symposium "Mapping the Galaxy and nearby Galaxies" held in Ishigaki Island, Okinawa, Japan, on June 25-30, 2006. The symposium focused on mapping the interstellar media and other components in galactic disks, bulges, halos, and central regions of galaxies. Thanks to recent progress in observations using radio... more...

  • Science with the Atacama Large Millimeter Arrayby Rafael Bachiller; Jose Cernicharo

    Springer 2008; US$ 219.00

    Currently under construction in the Andean Altiplano, Northern Chile, the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) is the most ambitious astronomy facility under construction. ALMA is a radio interferometer composed of 54 antennas of 12 m diameter, and twelve 7 m antennas with about 6600 square meters of total collecting area. Initially covering the most... more...

  • Cores to Clustersby P. Caselli; M.S.N. Kumar; M. Tafalla

    Springer 2008; US$ 289.00

    Contains proceedings of the "Cores to Clusters" workshop held at Centro de Astrofisica da Universidade do Porto during 7-9 October, 2004 to discuss future issues in star formation physics in the light of the Next Generation Telescopes. more...

  • Observing the Sun with Coronado Telescopesby Philip Pugh

    Springer 2007; US$ 39.95

    The Sun provides amateur astronomers with one of the few opportunities for daytime astronomy. In order to see the major features of our nearest star, special telescopes that have a very narrow visible bandwidth are essential. The bandwidth has to be as narrow as 1 A- 10-10 m (1 Angstrom) and centred on the absorption line of neutral hydrogen. This... more...

  • Spectroscopyby Keith Robinson

    Springer 2007; US$ 32.95

    This is the first non-technical book on spectroscopy written specifically for practical amateur astronomers. It includes all the science necessary for a qualitative understanding of stellar spectra, but avoids a mathematical treatment which would alienate many of its intended readers. Any amateur astronomer who carries out observational spectroscopy... more...
