Descripción de editorial
Astronomy for Everyone explains the fundamentals of Astronomy in language that is easily understood by non-astronomers. The newcomer to astronomy is often overcome by a myriad of scientific jargon which often leaves the reader blurry eyed, confused and overwhelmed. Astronomy for Everyone explains basic concepts and terms with the use of simple analogies and examples. All of the astrophotography images shown in this book were imaged from the Owl Mountain Observatory in North Alabama using my personal amateur equipment, or amateur equipment located remotely via the internet. My astrophotography has been featured in many magazines including National Geographic, Astronomy, Sky and Telescope and Better Photography as well as many websites such as Space.com. The Owl Mountain Observatory is located in a metropolitan area full of the light pollution that one would expect of a medium sized city. I use off-the-shelf telescopes, mounts, cameras and processing software for the production of my images. Follow along with free software as you learn how to locate celestial objects. Save yourself time and money by learning which telescope is best for your needs.
