About this book

Introduction

ASTRONOMERS’ OBSERVING GUIDES provide up-to-date information for amateur astronomers who want to know all about what it is they are observing. This is the basis of the first part of the book. The second part details observing techniques for practical astronomers, working with a range of different instruments.

 

The Moon is the most commonly observed of all astronomical objects. Here, Peter Grego provides a concise, readable description of the latest ideas about its origin, history and geology.

This is followed by a detailed guide for amateur astronomers who want to observe the Moon. It deals with equipment and techniques for a wide range of instruments – including the unaided eye – and features many practical hints and tips for practical astronomers.

In one book, here is all you need to observe the Moon with an understanding of just what it is you are looking at.
