The Science and Art of Using Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
The Science and Art of Using Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Amateur astronomers have to start somewhere. Most begin by buying a modest astronomical telescope and getting to know the night sky. After a while, many want to move on to the next stage, but this can be problematic. The magazines advertise a mass of commercially-made equipment – some of it very expensive – which can represent a major...
