Cataclysmic Cosmic Events and How to Observe Them (Astronomers' Observing Guides) Paperback – Import 2 Dec 2008
Product Description Review From the reviews: "Martin Mobberley’s book is very attractive not only in explaining the technical detail of cataclysmic phenomena but also in the promotion of useful observing projects for amateurs to undertake. … I found the advice in the final chapter about techniques equipment and software especially valuable. The book is a must for anyone interested in cataclysmic objects and I am sure many readers will be persuaded to enter this field for the first time having seen the successes that have been described." (Guy Hurst Astronomy Now May 2009) "Though the work is aimed at the advanced amateur astronomer Mobberley writes in a style that should keep the interest of the average undergraduate science student. … The numerous figures (many in color) help to show the physics of cataclysmic events. … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates and general readers." (J. R. Kraus Choice Vol. 46 (9) May 2009) From the Back Cover ASTRONOMERS’ OBSERVING GUIDES provide up-to-date information for amateur astronomers who want to know all about what it is they are observing. This is the basis of the first part of the book. The second part details observing techniques for practical astronomers working with a range of different instruments. This book invites you to observe the most spectacular high-energy events taking place in the cosmos. Even though these events may occur hundreds thousands millions or even billions of light-years away you can witness them using the naked eye binoculars or telescopes. The book covers cataclysmic variable stars (CV’s) novae and dwarf novae recurrent novae solar flares flare stars and prominences as well as the more distant supernovae hypernovae blazars quasars and gamma ray bursters.
