Arditti’s approachable work covers the all the details of design, siting and construction – once a basic type has been decided upon. It is written in a way that is equally applicable to the USA and UK (where there are slightly different building regulations) and deals with matters that are basic to building and commissioning any amateur observatory. Uniquely, David Arditti also considers the aesthetics of amateur observatories – fitting them in with family and neighbors, and maybe disguising them as more common garden buildings if necessary. Every amateur astronomer who wants a purpose-built observatory (and let’s face it, which one of them doesn’t?) will find this book invaluable.

Almost every amateur astronomer who has taken the pursuit to its second level aspires to a fixed, permanent housing for his telescope, permitting its rapid and comfortable use avoiding hours of setting-up time for each observing session. A roll-off roof observatory is the simplest and by far the most popular observatory design for today’s practical astronomers. Building a Roll-off Roof Observatory is unique, covering all aspects of designing a roll-off roof observatory: planning the site, viewing requirements, conforming to by-laws, and orientation of the structure. The chapters outline step-by-step construction of a typical building. The author, both an amateur astronomer and professional landscape architect, is uniquely qualified to write this fully-detailed book. A professionally designed roll-off observatory could cost as much as $3000 just for the plans – which are provided free with Building a Roll-off Roof Observatory.

My Heavens! charts the progress of the author’s own substantial observatory from conception, through design, planning and construction, to using an observatory of the kind that all amateur astronomers aspire to own. For those with more modest ambitions, the book offers many hints, tips and design features for smaller observatories. Comparisons are made with similar large projects in the USA. The story doesn’t end with the construction of the observatory, but goes on to describe the author’s choice of equipment, setting it up, and his own techniques for obtaining superb astronomical images like those displayed in his book.

This book is based around the author’s beautiful and sometimes awe-inspiring color images and mosaics of deep-sky objects. The book describes how similar "Hubble class" images can be created by amateur astronomers in their back garden using commercially available telescopes and CCD cameras. Subsequent processing and image enhancement in the "electronic darkroom" is covered in detail as well. A range of telescopes and equipment is considered, from the author’s 11-inch with Hyperstar camera, down to more affordable instruments. Appendices provide links to free software – not available from a single source – and are themselves an invaluable resource.

Wissenschaftsjournalist Rüdiger Vaas verfolgt die Forschungen von Stephen Hawking seit Jahren, hat ihn mehrfach getroffen und berichtet spannend und vor allem allgemeinverständlich von den neuesten Theorien und Fragestellungen des wohl berühmtesten Kosmologen: Wie ist das Universum entstanden? Wer oder was hat das als „Urknall“ beschriebene Mysterium vor rund 14 Milliarden Jahren ausgelöst? Die Entstehung der Welt kurz nach dem „Big Bang“ ist bereits gründlich erforscht worden – jetzt aber wollen Stephen Hawking & Co. auch diese letzte Grenze der menschlichen Erkenntnis sprengen. Haben Raum, Zeit, Materie und Energie einen Anfang oder sind sie ewig? Und ist es überhaupt sinnvoll zu fragen, was vor dem Urknall geschah? Der berühmteste Wissenschaftler unserer Zeit geht der Frage nach, wie es zum Urknall kam, warum das Weltall so beschaffen ist, wie wir es heute beobachten, und ob noch weitere Universen und verborgene Dimensionen existieren.

In Small Astronomical Observatories, Patrick Moore has collected descriptions of amateur and small professional observatories currently in use in Europe and America, showing how many astronomers have built their own observatory, often with effective and sometimes extraordinary improvisations to reduce the cost. There is a photograph of each, along with details of its construction and a foreword written by Patrick Moore. In addition to providing a fascinating study for its own sake, Small Astronomical Observatories offers a unique fund of ideas and practical details for anyone who wants to build an amateur or small professional observatory.

Eine faszinierende Entdeckungsreise zur Sonne und ihren unsichtbaren Welten. Für Fachkundige ebenso spannend zu lesen wie für Astronomie-Interessierte, führt das Buch verständlich in die Physik der Sonne ein und zeigt eindrucksvoll die Bedeutung des Sonnenlichts für das Leben auf der Erde. Gestützt auf neueste Forschungsergebnisse aus Radioteleskop- und Satellitenbeobachtungen beschreibt Kenneth Lang die gewaltigen atomenergetischen Prozesse der Sonne, den von ihr ausgehenden Neutrinofluß, ihre seismischen Aktivitäten, ihre Magnetfelder und Sonnenflecken, die Sonnenausbrüche und Protuberanzen, den Sonnenwind und den Einfluß der Sonne auf unser Klima und Wetter. Das Buch ist mit einer Fülle hervorragender Abbildungen ausgestattet, u.a. mit Fotomaterial der NASA, das hier zum ersten Mal veröffentlicht wird.
