9780521449212: The Cambridge Guide to the Constellations

What figures do the constellations of the night sky represent? What are the properties of the stars that they comprise? And which constellations are 'new', and which have become extinct? This unique reference book gathers together more information on the constellations than any other single work to date. The constellations can be readily compared, and a general view of them developed, using the tables that make up the first part of the book. These tables provide a wealth of information, covering all the essential properties of the constellations. In the second part of the book, each constellation is taken in turn, with a star chart and map illustrating the associated celestial figure and supported by a comprehensive list of essential properties. This highly illustrated volume provides the most complete reference to date, covering all factual aspects of the constellations for astronomers, both amateur and professional, educators and science writers.The author: Michael Bakich is currently the Planetarium Director for Kansas City Museum. He is an experienced writer and regularly writes columns for newspapers and the astronomy magazine Sky and Telescope.

Recensione:

'… a fascinating cornucopia of constellation facts and figures …' Adrian Ashford, New Scientist

' … one of the best … a lot of goodies for every amateur astronomer, both for the observing one and for the armchair astronomer … All of us have something to learn from this excellent book.' Jan Sandstrom, Astronomi und Raumfahrt

'If you want to have a reference book about constellations, then you want to have this book on your shelves.' Pam Spence, Astronomy Now

'The book has some novel ideas for the presentation of a wealth of unusual material and I found no mistakes. It is not a bedside book for browsing. It is a work to reside on a shelf for reference, mostly for amateur astronomers' use, but also for anyone with an interest in the stars.' Paul Murdin, imes Higher Education Supplement

Descrizione libro Cambridge University Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Paperback. 336 pages. Dimensions: 9.5in. x 7.5in. x 0.7in.Constellations are not new to astronomy. Even before the era of printing, patterns of stars have been recognized by humans and their histories have been passed on from generation to generation, culture to culture. This book is the ultimate constellation reference book. Finally, a book exists that brings together a variety of information about constellations, including: the size, visibility, and relative brightness of all eighty-eight constellations; former locations of extinct constellations; the number of visible stars in each constellation; and more. Using tables, this information is presented in the first part of the book so that constellations can be readily compared and a general view of them developed. In the second part of the book, each constellation is taken in turn, with a star chart and map illustrating the associated celestial figure, supported by a comprehensive list of essential properties. This highly illustrated volume provides the most complete reference to date covering all aspects of the constellations and will be helpful for astronomers, both amateur and professional, educators and science writers. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Codice libro della libreria 9780521449212
