Product description


'The quality and application of the first edition were acclaimed by numerous reviewers at the time, and the same epithets can be applied just as convincingly to this second edition … Kaler's treatment of the subject contains something for all levels of interest; it is comprehensive and thorough, and his style very readable, almost conversational, with smatterings of wry humour. It is unreservedly recommended.' The Observatory

Book Description

Revised and expanded, the second edition of this popular book provides a thorough introduction to stellar spectra. Each chapter explores a different star type, including new classes L and T. With modern digital spectra and updates from two decades of astronomical discoveries, it is invaluable for amateur astronomers and students.
