Not yet rated | write a review
The New Astronomy Guide is a one stop introduction to how to practise astronomy in the digital age. It explains the principles of astronomy as well as the practical techniques to provide both beginners and more experienced observers with all the information they need to understand and enjoy the wonders of the night sky and to capture and share the resulting images. Beginning with what can be seen with the naked eye in both the day and nighttime skies, Patrick Moore and Pete Lawrence describe the origin and nature of the Sun, Moon, planets, stars and distant galaxies and a host of other extraordinary astronomical objects, and how you can capture their images using a camera (or even a camera phone!) For those whose interest develops further, advice is given on choosing and using a telescope, teaming it with a camera, and capturing the sort of images which until recently could only be obtained with professional instruments. A full star atlas then helps you track down what you can see on any night of the year, making this a complete and self contained guide book.
