Small Telescopes and Astronomical Research ____ by Russ Genet, Jolyon Johnson and Vera Wallen:
This volume presents an expanded version of the material presented at conferences devoted to recent developments in small telescopes and their use for astronomical research and education. “Small” is, of course, a relative term, and the focus here is on apertures smaller than 1 meter ... often much smaller. The papers cover new telescope developments, the application of remote (internet) observatories, research projects based on small telescopes, and some wonderful “success stories” of astronomical research as an educational tool. Throughout, the theme is “first-hand experience”, which brings a nice personal touch to all of the papers. There is quite a bit of very good design and research information here, but it is not a stuffy academic tome.- MORE - $29.99 + $5.00 shipping in US (enquire aoubt overseas)

“I look up with not quite dark adapted eyes and the stars start coming into view. The first hint of dawn is just starting to show in the east on this early, crystal clear January morning. A light patch of morning fog lies over in the east to meet the early dawn, but that just gives the scene a little character. The night would have rated straight 10’s for darkness and transperancy” - excerpt from book
