For all but the simplest star-trail pictures, photographing the night sky involves machinery to track the stars, and the task becomes even more complicated when photographing very small or very faint objects that require high magnification or very long exposure times. Astrophotography for Amateurs presents equipment and techniques, features practical hints and tips from the experts, including coverage of traditional "wet" photography, CCD imaging, and computerized image enhancement. There are sections on photographing different classes of astronomical object from the moon to faint nebulae, as well as a detailed look at the equipment needed.

It is a pleasure to present this work, which has been well received in German-speaking countries through four editions, to the English-speaking reader. We feel that this is a unique publication in that it contains valuable material that cannot easily-if at all-be found elsewhere. We are grateful to the authors for reading through the English version of the text, and for responding promptly (for the most part) to our queries. Several authors have supplied us, on their own initiative or at our suggestion, with revised and updated manuscripts and with supplementary English references. We have striven to achieve a translation of Handbuch for Sternfreunde which accurately presents the qualitative and quantitative scientific principles con tained within each chapter while maintaining the flavor of the original Ger man text. Where appropriate, we have inserted footnotes to clarify material which may have a different meaning and/or application in English-speaking countries from that in Germany. When the first English edition of this work, Astronomy: A Handbook (translated by the late A. Beer), appeared in 1975, it contained 21 chapters. This new edition is over twice the length and contains 28 authored chap ters in three volumes. At Springer's request, we have devised a new title, Compendium of Practical Astronomy, to more accurately reflect the broad spectrum of topics and the vast body of information contained within these pages.

From the reviews: "Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts has appeared in semi-annual volumes since 1969 and it has already become one of the fundamental publications in the fields of astronomy, astrophysics and neighbouring sciences. It is the most important English-language abstracting journal in the mentioned branches. ...The abstracts are classified under more than a hundred subject categories, thus permitting a quick survey of the whole extended material. The AAA is a valuable and important publication for all students and scientists working in the fields of astronomy and related sciences. As such it represents a necessary ingredient of any astronomical library all over the world." Space Science Reviews#1 "Dividing the whole field plus related subjects into 108 categories, each work is numbered and most are accompanied by brief abstracts. Fairly comprehensive cross-referencing links relevant papers to more than one category, and exhaustive author and subject indices are to be found at the back, making the catalogues easy to use. The series appears to be so complete in its coverage and always less than a year out of date that I shall certainly have to make a little more space on those shelves for future volumes."

The Andromeda Galaxy – Messier’s M31 – has an almost romantic appeal. It is the most distant object and the only extragalactic object that is visible to the unaided human eye. Now known to be about 21⁄2 million light-years away, it appears in the sky to be several times the width of the full Moon under good seeing conditions. The Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy examines the astronomical studies of Andromeda and its importance to our developing knowledge of the universe. The book discusses how M31 was described both by the Ancients, but more importantly, by astronomers from the nineteenth century to the present. While at the start of the twentieth century the universe was thought of as a finite cosmos dominated by the Milky Way, the study of Andromeda galaxy shattered that image, leading ultimately to the conception of an infinite universe of countless galaxies and vast distances. Even today, M31 is a major focal point for new astronomical discoveries, and it also remains one of the most popular (and rewarding) celestial objects for amateur astronomers to observe and study. This book reveals the little-known history of M31 and the scientists who study it. For all who are interested in astronomy, the skies, and perhaps even the origins of the universe, The Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy provides a first-of-its-kind accessible, informative, and highly readable account of how the study and observation of this celestial object has driven the development of astronomy from ancient times to the present.

'Catchers of the Light' is a History of Astrophotography. It tells the true stories of the 46 pioneers who did most to master the art of celestial photography, as it was known during its early days; and whose efforts have made it possible for us to see the many magnificent pictures of the Universe featured in books, magazines and on the internet. In its TWO magnificent volumes is contained an unbelievable collection of tales of adventure, adversity and ultimate triumph and tells the uplifting stories of this small band of ordinary men and women, who did such extraordinary things; overcoming obstacles as diverse as war, poverty, cholera, death, very unfriendly cannibal natives and even exploding donkeys. It has been written with a no specific audience in mind - it is a book for anybody in fact - astronomers, photographers, historians, genealogists, art dealers, students, artists, doctors, farmers, builders, teachers & many more. If you like to read about the lives of special people - those who never give up - no matter what - and who succeed in achieving the seemingly impossible - then this is the book for you. This book of 1600 or so pages, with 1800 or more photographs/illustrations and over 2000 references/notes - represents the FIRST fully detailed and professionally researched book on the subject; and tells of the incredible lives of the pioneers of Astrophotography, each with their own incredible story to tell - they were the ‘Catchers of the Light’. Catchers of the Light is divided into ten Parts (I-X), each covering a specific aspect of the subject- I: Origins of Astrophotography; II: Lunar Astrophotography; III: Solar Astrophotography; IV: Solar System Astrophography; V: Deep Space Astrophotography; VI: Photographic Astronomical Spectroscopy; VII: Photographic Sky Surveys; VIII: Astrographs; IX: Modern Digital Age; X: Appendices.

This book is a practical guide to imaging and understanding the life-cycle of stars. As a keen amateur astronomer, with over 30 years experience imaging the night sky, Jeremy uses the story of stellar evolution as an effective platform to illustrate how amateur photographers can capture beautiful images of the night sky including glowing gases, dark dust, amazing multiple star systems, clusters of stars, stunning galaxies, ageing super-massive stars and the spectacular death of a star as a supernova. It tells the story of star birth, growth, ageing and death, giving a simple explanation of the complex physics of nuclear fusion that ultimately leads to the development of the elements required for life. Whilst not professing to be an academic textbook, the book is likely to appeal to those with a general interest in astronomy looking to grasp the basic concepts of stellar physics. There are over 70 full-colour images presented by the author, with details of equipment used, exposure details and an explanation of how the image was processed. In addition being an introduction to the technical aspects of astrophysics, it works as a coffee-table presentation of the wonders of the universe. The aim of the book is to encourage beginners to have a go at astrophotography, starting with basic photographic equipment and progressing through to more advanced and complex imaging techniques. Before introducing the story of the stars, the book explains why astrophotography can be a challenging but rewarding hobby, with a clear discussion of the methods used to overcome these inherent difficulties. Appendix I is a heartfelt description of how the author progressed from being a young teenager with no experience, through to an accomplished astrophotographer producing stunning images. Detailed tutorials are provided in Appendices II & III for the novice and for those looking to progress to more advanced imaging, with step by step instructions of how to use freely available imaging software and tips on how to use commercially available packages like Photoshop and PixInsight. The author's main intent, to enthuse budding astrophotographers and help them along in their own journey, is clear in the presentation style and content. With a wide range of hints and tips and a great collection of showcase images, this book will appeal to a broad cross section of readers.
