About this book

Patrick Moore’s Practical Astronomy Series

VISUAL ASTRONOMY UNDER DARK SKIES

A New Approach to Observing Deep Space

 

 

Modern astronomical telescopes, along with other advances in technology, have brought the deep sky – star clusters, nebulae and the galaxies – within visual reach of amateur astronomers.

It isn’t necessary to image deep-sky objects in order to see them; you look at them in real-time by using modern observing techniques and enhancement technology.

The first requirement is a truly dark observing site. Given a location with clear, dark night skies everything else follows… this book contains all you need to know about what to observe, how to get superb views of faint and distant astronomical objects, and how to use the best of today’s commercial equipment for visual observing.

Reviews

Cooke is full of great ideas and insight relevant to visual observers who are keen to use a bit of technology in support of their hobby / obsession, for observers at all locations. Highly recommended for visual observers who want to push their eyeball observing to the limit.
