Astronomy Demystified


McGraw-Hill Professional; 1 edition (August 1, 2002) | ISBN: 0071384278 | 575 pages | PDF | 2,3 Mb

* Allows the reader to quickly and easily grasp the math, fundamentals, and general concepts involved in astronomy
* Covers techniques for using telescopes, the challenges of amateur astrophotography, and the special problems of observing the sky at "invisible wavelengths"
* Unlike most books on the topic, it presents general concepts first and details follow
* Contains quizzes, tests, and final exams

Quick and easy math, fundamentals, and general concepts involved in astronomy.

In this book, we'll go on a few "mind journeys." For example, we'll take a tour of the entire Solar System, riding hybrid space, aircraft into the atmospheres and, in some cases, to the surfaces of celestial bodies other than Earth. Some of the details of this trip constitute fiction, but the space vehicles and navigational mechanics are based on realistic technology and astronomical facts.
