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.
