The New Astronomy Guide: Stargazing in the Digital Age
Bargain Book Copy
Explains the principles and techniques of astronomy in order to provide both beginners and experienced observers with 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, the authors 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.
This book includes full star atlases for the northern and southern hemispheres to help you track down what you can see on any night of the year, 250 color photographs, and a removable Moon map and whole sky posters.
