Urban Astronomer's Guide On Kindle
The Urban Astronomer's Guide: A Walking Tour of the Cosmos for City Sky Watchers
The majority of amateur astronomers would like to observe with greater frequency. The majority of them, however, reside in urban and highly developed suburban areas that are heavily light polluted.
Because of this light pollution, they're of the opinion that deep sky objects-nebulae, galaxies, star clusters-are either invisible or perhaps not worth observing from home.
This Kindle book explains the numerous objects that can be seen in a bright urban sky, and shows the city or suburban astronomer the best way to observe object after object and season after season. This book covers the ""why,"" ""how,"" and ""what"" of astronomy under light-polluted skies.
The prospective city-based observer is informed exactly why to observe from home (there are many hundreds of breathtaking objects to be seen from the typical urban site), the best way to observe the city sky (telescopes, accessories, and moderns techniques), and what things to observe.
