Over the years, his postings and his direct emails have helped many of us deepen our understanding and overcome obstacles we encountered. Their images are a valuable addition to book, making it more accessible and informative. The reader will not need to have any prior knowledge of the subject or understanding of complex mathematics in order to use this book. Even if you have read this kind of background on the field many times before, you'll find that Ken's presentation and his inclusion of new details makes it fresh and interesting reading. Clearly Ken has a lot more he can write about. The E-mail message field is required. Description: 1 online resource xii, 160 pages : illustrations.
Written in plain English and without difficult equations, it can make the subject accessible to anyone. I think you can request a copy from Brian Warner though. Hubbell lays down a road map to penetrate and methodically correct the root causes of problems often encountered when acquiring images that will allow you to obtain high-quality data that can be used in research… The book also has detailed descriptions of how to complete each step along the way, full descriptions of how and why things work they way they do, and forms to record your notes, which are so critical to research. However, that's one of the realities of book publishing these days. Each section deals with different parts of what a beginning or advanced amateur astronomer needs to be aware of when learning about and building the different types of equipment used to see and record the light spectrum being imitated from stars - our own star sun included. Series Title: Responsibility: Keith Robinson.
Any amateur astronomer who carries out observational spectroscopy and who wants a non-tec This is the first non-technical book on spectroscopy written specifically for practical amateur astronomers. Thank you all of you for making your work available. But, now, having read it through, I think that this section will be appreciated by almost everyone. This is the first non-technical book on spectroscopy written specifically for practical amateur astronomers.

Other books in the Springer series I have bought also suffer from more typos than average and this can only be attributed to lax editorial supervision. The book is divided into three sections: Part One: Introduction to Spectroscopy - Covers the history and theory of the field, including a good discussion of the different types of spectroscopes.
We sell this grating here:. This is a great book for the amateur astronomer who wishes to learn about photometry. . Amateurs have gotten good results with this grating. Description du produit Are you ready for a different way of looking at the stars? Really great, short intro to spectroscopy for amateurs. Readers learn to recognize and avoid common errors in gathering photometry data, with detailed examples for analysis. It starts out with parallax that is used on nearby objects.
It includes all the science necessary for a qualitative understanding of stellar spectra, but avoids a mathematical treatment which would alienate many of its intended readers. His site has countless examples of the kind of deep, high-quality, scientific work that he does. Take a look at our on-line calculator to easily determine how to mount a Star Analyser grating. Description du produit Shock-induced dynamic fracture of solids is of practical importance in many areas of materials science, chemical physics, engineering, and geophysics. It is an ideal companion to existing books on observational amateur astronomical spectroscopy.
The book is a worthy addition to any advanced amateur astronomer's library. Beginning variable star observers will find a wealth of excellent information. I re-read this book periodically and always learning something new. Ken is a leader in the amateur community with a great deal of experience is all aspects of the field. Practical Astronomy thus bridges the gap between the many introductory books and specialised technical publications.
I like this book a lot, but it is short and the text needs supplementing with other sources. Description: xii, 159 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm. And, of course, spectroscopy plays a big part! S Publisher: London : Springer, ©2007. Spectroscopy-A New Golden Age for Amateur Astronomy. We look at light sources and stars. Then simply review the first few videos on our video page.
Springer should take more responsibility for this though since they publish these advanced amateur guides and charge textbook prices for them. I just wish the book referenced fundamental formulae more and depended less on references to commercial software products. Surprisingly, a lot of astronomy textbooks gloss over this topic; it was nice to have a book to explain things more. But, once you get serious, you should really consider obtaining Warner's Canopus program which is mentioned in the text. The amateur astronomers, who are not familiar with physics or who have forgotten the essentials of this science, will read it. Any amateur astronomer who carries out observational spectroscopy and who wants a non-technical account of the physical processes which determine the intensity and profile morphology of lines in stellar spectra will find this is the only book written specially for them. It allows you to read and interpret the recorded spectra of the main stellar classes, as well as most of the steps from proto-stars through to the final stages of stellar evolution as planetary nebulae, white dwarfs or the different types of supernovae.
