John Barrow zeigt uns die bislang... more...

  • The Amateur Astronomer's Guide to the Deep-Sky Catalogsby Jerry D. Cavin

    Every amateur astronomer has at least heard of the many different catalogs of deep-sky objects; the most well known are the Messier, the Caldwell, the Herschel, and the NGC.

  • Ancient Astronomical Observations and the Study of the Moon’s Motion (1691-1757)by John M. Steele

    Springer 2012; US$ 124.00

    The discovery of a gradual acceleration in the moon's mean motion by Edmond Halley in the last decade of the seventeenth century led to a revival of interest in reports of astronomical observations from antiquity. These observations provided the only means to study the moon's 'secular acceleration', as this newly-discovered acceleration... more...

  • Astronomy with a Budget Telescopeby Patrick Moore; John Watson

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    "...The Multiversal book series is equally unique, providing book-length extensions of the lectures with enough additional depth for those who truly want to explore these fields, while also providing the kind of clarity that is appropriate for interested lay people to grasp the general principles involved." - Lawrence M. Krauss Cosmic Update... more...
