  • The Universeby Josip Kleczek

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 81.80

    The universe is the largest system of all. It consists of elementary particles bound together by gravitational, electromagnetic and nuclear forces. Its structural hierar­ chy in space (from atomic nuclei to supergalaxies) and its evolutionary sequence (from the fireball to the diversity of present forms) is governed by the properties of elementary... more...

  • Budget Astrophotographyby Timothy J. Jensen

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 26.55

    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!

  • Astrophotography on the Goby Joseph Ashley

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 37.18

    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...

    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$ 127.49

    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...

  • High-Precision Studies of Compact Variable Starsby Steven Bloemen

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 92.42

    This book, which is a reworked and updated version of Steven Bloemen?s original PhD thesis, reports on several high-precision studies of compact variable stars. Its strength lies in the large variety of observational, theoretical and instrumentation techniques that are presented and used and paves the way towards new and detailed asteroseismic applications... more...
