  • Fast Spectral Variability in the X-ray Emission of Accreting Black Holesby Chris Skipper

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis brings together the various techniques of X-ray spectral analysis in order to examine the properties of black holes that vary in mass by several orders of magnitude. In all these systems it is widely accepted that the X-ray emission is produced by Compton up-scattering of lower energy seed photons in a hot corona or accretion flow, and... more...

  • L' astronomie et son histoireby Jean-René Roy

    Presses de l''niversite du Quebec 1982; US$ 44.25

    Le livre de Jean-René Roy nous présente une vaste synthèse des connaissances présentes en astronomie.

  • Budget Astrophotographyby Timothy J. Jensen

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 29.99

    Here are clear explanations of how to make superb astronomical deep-sky images using only a DSLR or webcam and an astronomical telescope ? no expensive dedicated CCD cameras needed! The book is written for amateur astronomers interested in budget astrophotography ? the deep sky, not just the Moon and planets ? and for those who want to improve their... more...

  • Astrophotography on the Goby Joseph Ashley

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 39.99

    No longer are heavy, sturdy, expensive mounts and tripods required to photograph deep space. With today's advances in technology, all that is required is an entry-DSLR and an entry level GoTo telescope. Here is all of the information needed to start photographing the night sky without buying expensive tracking mounts. By using multiple short exposures... more...

  • Viewing and Imaging the Solar Systemby Jane Clark

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 34.99

    This book helps the reader get the most out of observing and photographing a variety of objects in the Solar System, from Earth's moon and easily observable major planets and moons to the more difficult to observe smaller planets, asteroids, and comets. more...

  • Asteroseismology of Stellar Populations in the Milky Wayby Andrea Miglio; Patrick Eggenberger; Léo Girardi; Josefina Montalban

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 199.00

    The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in thousands of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the road for detailed studies of stellar populations in the Galaxy. The available average seismic constraints allow largely model-independent determination of stellar radii and masses, and can be used to determine the position... more...
