Small Telescopes and Astronomical Research ____ by Russ Genet, Jolyon Johnson and Vera Wallen: STAR

This volume presents an expanded version of the material presented at conferences devoted to recent developments in small telescopes and their use for astronomical research and education.  “Small” is, of course, a relative term, and the focus here is on apertures smaller than 1 meter ...  often much smaller.  The papers cover new telescope developments, the application of remote (internet) observatories, research projects based on small telescopes, and some wonderful “success stories” of astronomical research as an educational tool.  Throughout, the theme is “first-hand experience”, which brings a nice personal touch to all of the papers.  There is quite a bit of very good design and research information here, but it is not a stuffy academic tome.- MORE - $29.99 includes shipping in US (enquire about overseas)
