I picked up a copy of Philips' "2020 Stargazing month by month guide to the Night Sky" by Couper & Henbest at a discount & remainder store for £3 (reduced from £6.99)
It looks like a handy little book, especially for novices, and contains a sky map for each month, monthly objects of interest as well as a listing of the year's special events (conjunctions, etc) and a guide to astrophotography.
Hey guys! Its been 8 months since i ve started the hobby of astronomy.I would like to dig deeper now,i am looking for a book in astrophysics that involves mostly formulas and mathematics.With so many books in the market its hard to defferentiate science books from just books with information about the subject
One of the reasons I wanted to buy a telescope was to observe the colourful double stars. Just read in July edition of Astronomy Now magazine that Albireo ,s wonderful colours will be washed out to some degree in a light polluted area.
it would seem pointless to buy a telescope for a light polluted back garden., If this is the case.
The latest edition of the Binocular Sky Newsletter is ready. As well as the usual overview of DSOs, variable and double stars, this month we have:
* Uranus and Neptune are back (just!)
* A couple of Mira variables near maximum
* Ceres is still available
* Review of the Bino Bandit
I hope it helps you to get the best out of these short summer nights with your binoculars or small telescopes.
