Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book! Both novice and advanced skywatchers will value this comprehensive and easy-to-use guide to the brilliant and ever-changing sights of the southern sky by night. Readers are introduced to the many and varied objects in the sky and their movements and changing appearances, as well as the ancient myths and legends entwined around the groupings of stars. Featured in this book are two groups of sky charts, designed so that readers can move easily between them. The 24 skyviews show the appearance of the whole night sky every two weeks (or at each hour of sidereal time). The 20 sky charts show particular areas of the night sky in detail and are accompanied by explanatory text.
This unique and accessible book provides a handy reference to the skies visible from the countries of the southern hemisphere. Amateur astronomers or casual observers of the night sky will have easy access to the star charts of world famous astronomical cartographer Wil Tirion, prepared especially for this volume. Television astronomer David Ellyard has contributed a detailed explanatory text to accompany the charts, together with a general introduction to the study of the night sky. Charts of the whole sky - 24 in all - show what is visible early and late in each month.
O'Meara. Charles Messier (1730-1817) devoted much of his life to searching the skies for comets. As he continued his comet hunting, Messier added other curious deep-sky objects to the list, largely with help from a young rival, Pierre Mechain. By 1781 the Messier catalog had grown to 103 entries. Two centuries later, backyard observers still consider many of the "M" objects the jewels of the night sky; all are splendid targets for viewing with binoculars and small telescopes.
This is an excellent introduction to observational astronomy for beginners of all ages. Aimed at those with no background in science or astronomy - just a sense of curiosity and a willingness to step outside their backdoor and look up. The author covers what you can see with a pair of binoculars, tips for choosing binoculars for astronomy and practical tips for observing. A large section of the book is dedicated to information about the types of objects visible as well as a detailed tour through 56 constellations visible from the southern hemisphere.
The 110 star clusters, nebulae and galaxies of Messier’s catalogue are among the most popular of all the deep sky objects and are beautiful targets for amateur observers of all abilities. This stunning new atlas presents a complete and lively account of all of the Messier objects. Details for each object given include a thoroughly-researched history of its discovery, historical observations and anecdotes, the latest scientific data detailing its astrophysical findings, and clear observational descriptions from naked eye through to large telescopes. In addition, this atlas has some of the world’s finest colour astrophotos, inverted and labelled photos pointing to hidden details and neighboring objects, as well as historical sketches alongside new deep sky drawings. Quite simply, this is the most far-reaching and beautiful reference on the Messier objects there has ever been, and one that no observer should be without! * Features 200 halftone sketches, 180 full colour plates with 50 tables.
