  • The Observer's Guide to Planetary Motionby Dominic Ford

    Springer 2014; US$ 34.99

    To the naked eye, the most evident defining feature of the planets is their motion across the night sky. It was this motion that allowed ancient civilizations to single them out as different from fixed stars.

    For millennia, the passing seasons and their rhythms have marked our progress through the year.

    Binoculars have, for many, long been regarded as an "entry level" observational tool, and relatively few have used them as a serious observing instrument. This is changing! Many people appreciate the relative comfort of two-eyed observing, but those who use binoculars come to realize that they offer more than comfort. The view of the stars... more...
