Real Astronomy with Small Telescopes

This book demonstrates the use of an 80mm refractor and shows how it can be used as a real scientific instrument. The author is an experienced small telescope user and an astronomy educator, and he provides step-by-step instructions for numerous scientific activities. Users will find many activities and projects suitable for an 80mm refractor or 90mm reflector or Maksutov that have not been published elsewhere. Emphasis is on measurement and discovery activities rather than on casual observing. This book will provide amateur observers with the knowledge and skill that will help them make genuine contributions to the field of astronomy.

The Real Astronomy

I do not think that anyone of us has the ability to say that he has the absolute truth, but it is very useful to claim that he has an approach between truth and reality. In this book, I will not pretend I had caught the edge of absolute truth .. this is a delusion was never claimed by me. But, I think, this is the time that we can talk about the real astronomy. Real astronomy where we can put a perfect imagination about the real form of our Solar System, in order to be able to access the nature of planetary motion and to identify the underlying secrets.

The Fontana History of Astronomy and Cosmology

The big bang, black holes, space travel and life in other galaxies - this is the stuff of science fiction and the subject of much current speculation and research on the part of astronomers and cosmologists. Back in the Stone Age, men struggled to build calendars using 30-foot high rocks, while the Phoenicians, Moors and Chinese learnt to map the heavens in order to move around the earth and seas. This book shows how man's chronological needs pulled scientific developments along and helped generate the geometrical and mathematical principles in operation today.

Foundations of Astronomy

This newly revised and updated seventh edition of FOUNDATIONS OF ASTRONOMY shows students their place in the universe – not just their location, but also their role as planet dwellers in an evolving universe. Fascinating and engaging, the book illustrates how science works, and how scientists depend on evidence to test hypotheses. Students will learn to focus on the scientific method through the strong central theme of "how we know what we know." Through a discussion of this interplay between evidence and hypothesis, Seeds provides not just a series of facts, but also a conceptual framework for understanding the logic of astronomical knowledge. The book vividly conveys the author's love of astronomy, shows students how the universe can be described by a small set of physical laws, and illustrates how they can comprehend their place in the universe by understanding these laws, rather than simply memorizing facts. By crafting a story about astronomy, Seeds shows students how to ask questions of nature and therefore gradually puzzle out the beautiful secrets of the physical world. The book's use of mathematics is incorporated into the body of the text (as well as in separate sections for easy reference), but the arguments of the text do not depend on mathematical reasoning, allowing math-averse students to easily follow the story. The revision covers the history of astronomy, elementary physics concepts, stars and galaxies, the origins of the universe, and the solar system.

How well do these ideas connect with the real astronomical world? To find out,
we look for actual stars at various stages in their life cycles, and with different
masses and compositions, that are like the stars predicted by our models of stars.
