9781852338787: The Amateur Astronomer (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)

This 2000 Edition of Sir Patrick Moore’s classic book has been completely revised in the light of changes in technology. Not only do these changes include commercially available astronomical telescopes and software, but also what we know and understand about the universe.

There are many new photographs and illustrations.

Packs a great deal of valuable information into appendices which make up almost half the book. These are hugely comprehensive and provide hints and tips, as well as data (year 2000 onwards) for pretty well every aspect of amateur astronomy.

This is probably the only book in which all this information is collected in one place.

From the Back Cover:

Sir Patrick Moore, CBE, FRS is without a doubt the world’s most widely known and respected of broadcasters on astronomy. His BBC-TV program, The Sky at Night, remains the longest-running TV program in the history of broadcasting.

For more than three decades The Amateur Astronomer has inspired generations of amateur astronomers. Almost uniquely, Patrick Moore has written a book that is useful to astronomers at all levels, from beginner to expert.

Appendices – completely updated in this new edition – provide extensive star, lunar and planetary maps, along with a vast amount of data and information that makes this book an essential for every amateur astronomer’s library.

Review:

From the reviews of the twelfth edition:

"The Amateur Astronomer is aimed at both novice and experienced amateur, although evidently biased towards the former. ... should be mandatory reading for anyone thinking of buying a first telescope. ... We find here useful statistical data, cartographies, catalogues, and notes relevant to the owners of small to medium telescopes. ... Now approaching 50 years old ... this 12th edition continues the book’s long tradition of providing an invaluable handbook for those requiring a broad introduction to amateur astronomy. A classic; absolutely recommended." (Steve Ringwood, Astronomy Now, June 2005)

"Classic text that covers the basics of all the major areas of astronomical observing, from lunar and planetary studies to observing and measuring double and variable stars. The high-quality black & white illustrations and images in this book bring together the old and the new in a way that is refreshingly different. ... This highly recommended book will have pride of place on my bookshelf and I will continue to dip in and out of it for many years to come." (Neil English, Astronomy and Space, January, 2007)
