  • Nebulae and How to Observe Themby Steven Coe

    Springer London 2007; US$ 32.95

    Nebulae are the places where the stars are born. For amateur astronomers, the many different kinds of nebulae vary from "easy" targets that can be seen with modest equipment under mediocre skies, to more obscure "challenging" objects that require experienced observers, more powerful telescopes and excellent observation conditions. The concept... more...

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 149.00

    The exploration of the first billion years of the history of the Universe represents one of the great challenges of contemporary astrophysics. During this time, the first structures start to form the first stars, galaxies, and possibly also soon the first quasars. At the same time, light comes to the dark, neutral Universe. This book contains the... more...

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

  • Clusters of Galaxies: Beyond the Thermal Viewby Jelle Kaastra

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 209.00

    This book presents a review on the physics of clusters of galaxies beyond the standard thermal view. The book first gives a general introduction to clusters of galaxies. It discusses the properties of the hot, virialised gas in these clusters. But the main focus is on what is beyond this thermal gas: the surrounding warm-hot intergalactic medium, non-thermal... more...

  • Groups of Galaxies in the Nearby Universeby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 119.00

    For every galaxy in the field or in clusters, there are about three galaxies in groups. The Milky Way itself resides in a group, and groups can be found at high redshift. The current generation of 10-m class telescopes and space facilities allows the observation of the members of nearby groups with exquisite detail, and their properties can be correlated... more...

  • The Emission-Line Universeby Jordi Cepa

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 48.00
