  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The 2007 ESO Instrument Calibration Workshopby Andreas Kaufer; Florian Kerber

    Springer 2008; US$ 149.00

    The 2007 ESO Instrument Calibration workshop brought together more than 120 participants with the objective to a) foster the sharing of information, experience and techniques between observers, instrument developers and instrument operation teams, b) review the actual precision and limitations of the applied instrument calibration plans, and c) collect... more...

  • From Luminous Hot Stars to Starburst Galaxiesby Peter S. Conti; Paul A. Crowther; Claus Leitherer

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 76.00

    A detailed introduction for graduate students and researchers, which connects the astrophysics of massive stars with the extremes of galaxy evolution. more...

  • The Stars of Heavenby Clifford A. Pickover

    Oxford University Press, USA 2004; US$ 18.99

    Do a little armchair space travel, rub elbows with alien life forms, and stretch your mind to the furthest corners of our uncharted universe. With this astonishing guidebook, you don't have to be an astronomer to explore the mysteries of stars and their profound meaning for human existence. Clifford A. Pickover tackles a range of topics from stellar... more...

  • Galaxies in the Local Volumeby B.S. Koribalski; H. Jerjen

    Springer 2009; US$ 279.00

    Contains at least 500 known galaxies, many of which congregate in well-known groups like the 'Local Group', the relatively loose Sculptor Group, and the more compact Centaurus A group. This book provides accurate distances for the majority of these nearby galaxies, allowing us to visualise the Local Volume in 3D, and study the local Hubble... more...

  • An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysicsby Francis LeBlanc

    Wiley 2011; US$ 62.00

    An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics aspires to provide the reader with an intermediate knowledge on stars whilst focusing mostly on the explanation of the functioning of stars by using basic physical concepts and observational results. The book is divided into seven chapters, featuring both core and optional content: Basic concepts Stellar... more...

  • Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics: Volume 3by Erika Böhm-Vitense

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 56.00

    This book is the final one in a series of three texts which together provide a modern, complete and authoritative account of our present knowledge of the stars. It discusses the internal structure and the evolution of stars, and is completely self-contained. more...
