9780007242245: Anton Vamplew's Stargazing Secrets

An accessible and informative guide to everything you can see in the night sky with binoculars and a telescope. The next level up from his previous book Simple Stargazing, Anton Vamplew's Stargazing Secrets is aimed at the astronomer who wants to find out about everything that can be seen in the night sky with the naked eye, and with binoculars or a telescope. With advice on choosing and using the right equipment, this is the ideal guide for any avid astronomer wanting to develop their knowledge. Packed with information on what you will be able to see, and illustrated with the author's charts, Stargazing Secrets discusses some of the more complex issues and terminologies of astronomy such as how to measure the distance of a star from the Earth, why the Moon appears bigger nearer the horizon than high in the sky, and where and when to see aurorae. Guiding you through the more distant aspects of our universe and covering constellations, double stars and galactic clusters in both northern and southern hemispheres, this lively, accessible and authoritative book makes a complex subject enjoyable and easy to understand.
