About this product
- DescriptionWould you like to discover a comet? Or maybe you would like to be the first person on Earth - perhaps in the Universe - to recognise a celestial newcomer such as a va or superva. First published in 1992, this Guide tells you how to become an astromical discoverer using only modest equipment. It describes what approaches to take in searching the night skies for the unusual and the unexpected. Included are 20 contributions from both amateur and professional astromers who are world famous for their discoveries. This book covers all the kinds of objects that an amateur can hope to find as a result of systematic searching. Personal contributions from ted discoverers such as David Levy and Miru Honda (comets), Bob Evans (supervae), Elear Helin and Brian Manning (asteroids) and Mike Collins and Dan Kaiser (variable stars) reveal the secrets of their successful methods. The visual, photographic and electronic search techniques of the early nineties, are described as well as instructions on ways of reporting discoveries. Extensive appendices pack in a wealth of useful data for every intrepid discoverer of cosmic phemena.
