Most amateur astronomers yearn to observe more frequently. Many of them, however, live in urban and highly developed suburban areas that are heavily light polluted. Due to this light pollution, they are under the impression that deep sky objects - nebulae, galaxies, star clusters- are either invisible or not worth viewing from home. This book describes the many objects that can be seen in a bright urban sky, and shows the city or suburban astronomer how to observe object after object, season after season. This book covers the "why," "how," and "what" of astronomy under light-polluted skies.…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Most amateur astronomers yearn to observe more frequently. Many of them, however, live in urban and highly developed suburban areas that are heavily light polluted. Due to this light pollution, they are under the impression that deep sky objects - nebulae, galaxies, star clusters- are either invisible or not worth viewing from home. This book describes the many objects that can be seen in a bright urban sky, and shows the city or suburban astronomer how to observe object after object, season after season. This book covers the "why," "how," and "what" of astronomy under light-polluted skies. The prospective city-based observer is told why to observe from home (there are hundreds of spectacular objects to be seen from the average urban site), how to observe the city sky (telescopes, accessories, and moderns techniques), and what to observe. About 50% of the book is devoted to describing "tours" of the sky, with physical and observational descriptions, at-the-eyepiece drawings, and photographs. TOC:Part One: Telescopes, Equipment and Techniques.- The Why and How of Urban and Suburban Observing.- Suitable Telescopes.- Essential and Optional Accessories for Polluted Skies.- Observing Techniques and Special Projects.- Part Two: Observing Guide and Suggested Sky Tours.- Spring objects.- Summer objects.- Autumn objects.- Winter objects.- Appendices.- Internet Resources.- Finding Directions and Positions.- Object Classification and Description.- Further Reading.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The Urban Astronomer's Guide seeks to debunk and a convincing job it does too. ... a useful introduction to astronomy in general and a helpful guide to anyone, urban or otherwise, thinking of buying or upgrading their equipment. ... The Urban Astronomers Guide brings serious deep space observation right to where you can get the most out of it - your own back yard." (Ray Bradfield, Astronomy and Space, February, 2008)
