5.0 out of 5 stars Great primer on solar observations 29 Jan. 2011
By pghskier - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a nice compact book for first time sun observers. There are lots of basic solar facts using descriptive illustrations and supporting calculations. This book is especially useful for those wanting to chart sunspots. The book is small enough to take on those solar outings. I could have used this book while performing those solar observation experiments in college.

4.0 out of 5 stars ok 13 May 2007

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I guess I've been spoiled by Terrence Dickinson's books. Anyways, this is an informative book. I would have liked it better if the book was bigger; the font was at least 12 (instead of 10) and more pictures and labeling. But still a great book if you're trying to learn more about the sun.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but missing photos 1 Jun. 2013

Good, but missing photos. The content is also a bit outdated. The text is written in very small font and hard to read. Even so, I recommend!
