  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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
