Product description

Synopsis

Starting with an introduction to the ways in which urban lighting and pollution have reduced the city astronomer's options, this book explains what can be achieved through an understanding of optimum weather conditions and the right equipment, including new advances such as the charge-coupled device, and concentration on bright objects such as the sun, moon, planets and stars, rather than faint objects such as galaxies and nebulae.
