Produktbeschreibung
This book is intended for amateur astronomers who are readers of Sky & Telescope magazine or similar astronomy periodicals - or are at least at the same level of knowledge and enthusiasm. Supernovae, the subject of this book, represent the most violent stellar explosions in the universe. It is a unique guide to supernova facts, and it is also an observing/discovery guide, all in one package. Supernovae are often discovered by amateur astronomers, and Martin Mobberley describes the best strategies for discovering and observing them. Moreover, Supernovae and How to Observe Them contains detailed information about the probable physics of supernovae, a subject which even today is imperfectly understood. Here is a book that is essential reading for any amateur astronomer who is interested in discovering, observing, or learning about supernovae. TOC:Part 1. Supernovae facts and feats.- Supernova Physics - what they are.- Supernovae as a measure of the Universe.- Supernovae in History.- The Top 100 Supernovae.- Supernovae - a threat to life on Earth?.- Part 2. Observing and Discovering Supernovae.- Supernovae as visual variable stars.- Supernova photometry and light curves.- Amateur supernova hunting in the 21st Century.- The 40 Messier galaxies - images and locations.- The Caldwell galaxies - images and locations- The first 200 Supernovae (thumbnail mosaics).

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "Supernovae and How to Observe Them is the ideal book for amateur supernova hunters. ... This is a book that is suitable for all practising amateur astronomers who would like to know more about observing supernovae and especially for those who would like to discover them. ... It is thoroughly recommended." (Ron Arbour, BBC Sky at Night, September, 2007) "If you like reading about and/or observing the universe's biggest blasts, you'll be interested in a book that just crossed my desk. Supernovae and How to Observe Them by Martin Mobberley is, as the title suggests, a dual purpose book. ... If you've ever thought about hunting for supernovae, or if you just want to know more about them, this book is one you'll want to add to your reference shelf." (Michael Bakich, Astronomy Magazine, October, 2007)
