Faint Objects and How to Observe Them (Kartoniert / Broschiert / Paperback)

Reihe: Astronomers' Observing Guides

Springer-Verlag GmbH, Springer US, Oktober 2012

241 S. - Sprache: Englisch - 85 schwarz-weiße und 8 farbige Abbildungen - 236x180x20 mm

ISBN: 1441967567 EAN: 9781441967565

Faint Objects and How to Observe Them is for visual observers who are equipped with a 10-inch or larger astronomical telescope and who want to "go deep" with their observing. It provides a guide to some of the most distant, dim, and rarely observed objects in the sky, supported by background information on surveys and objects lists - some familiar, such as Caldwell, and some not so familiar. This book not only provides a wealth of experience compiled from several sources, but it also gives an historical background to surveys whose names may or may not be familiar to most amateur astronomers. Finally, it includes a listing of the many galaxy clusters out there, from "nearby" ones such as Stefan's Quintet to some of the most distant groups observable through the largest telescopes.

Über den Autor

Brian Cudnik has been an amateur astronomer for over 30 years and manages the Physics laboratories at Prairie View A& M University (a part of the A&M University of Texas). He has been the coordinator of the Lunar Meteoritic Impact Search section of the Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers (ALPO) since January 2000. Cudnik began at ALPO two months after it made the first confirmed visual observation of a meteoroid impact on the Moon during the Leonid storm of November 1999. Cudnik has an MSc and has published papers and posters on various astronomical subjects, both peer-reviewed and amateur. He has served as a board member of the Houston Astronomical Society, is presently an Associate member of the American Astrononmical Society, a member of the American Association of Variable Star and a regular contributor of observations to the International Occultation Timing Association. He teaches astronomy at the University of St. Thomas two evenings per week each semester.
