Bring astronomy down from the mountaintops and into the backyard with this one-stop stargazing manual from Sir Patrick Moore and Pete Lawrence, stars of the BBC's The Sky at Night. These days, affordable telescopes, cameras, and software make it easy for anyone to explore the heavens—and capture breathtaking images. Here is all the information amateur astronomers need to proceed, including a month-by-month sky guide, a large wall poster of all the constellations visible from Earth, and a detailed map of the Moon compiled by Moore, who has advised NASA on lunar cartography.

About the Author:

Sir Patrick Moore is the presenter of the world’s longest-running television program––BBC TV’s The Sky at Night, which was first broadcast in 1957. He is the author of more than 100 books, and has played a unique role in astronomy education and popularizing science over six decades. He was recently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society––something he shares with Sir Isaac Newton.
 
Pete Lawrence appears regularly on The Sky at Night demonstrating practical astronomy with an emphasis on what can be seen in the night sky that month. He is an expert observer and photographer, and is known for spectacular astronomical images, several of which have been featured on the NASA website––Astronomy Picture of the Day.

Book Description Carlton Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A one-stop introduction to how to do astronomy in the digital age. Thanks to modern technology, there is no longer a daunting boundary for those of us who wish to experience what it is like to actually do astronomy. Starting with a simple camera and laptop, it is possible to create beautiful images of the stars and the Moon, and perhaps, with a larger lens, to capture the rings of Saturn or the Moons of Jupiter. Add a modern telescope with superb optics and computer control, and many amateur astronomers are now producing breathtaking images of planets and remote galaxies that only a decade ago were the exclusive province of astronomers with access to professional telescopes. Stargazing: The Digital Astronomer explains the principles of astronomy as well as the practical techniques to provide both beginners and more experienced observers with all the information they need to understand and enjoy the wonders of the night sky - and to capture and share the resulting images.
