Hunting and Imaging Comets (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Название: Hunting and Imaging Comets (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series) Автор: Martin Mobberley Издательство: Springer Год: 2010 Страниц 394 ISBN: 1441969047 Формат: PDF Размер: 19 MB Язык Английский For many astronomers,
the holy grail of observation is to discover a comet, not least because comets
always bear the name of their discoverer! Hunting and Imaging Comets was
written for comet hunters and digital imagers who want to discover, rediscover,
monitor, and make pictures of comets using astronomical CCD cameras and DSLRs.
The old days of the purely visual comet hunter are pretty much over, but this
is not to say that amateurs have lost interest in finding comets. The books also
covers the discovery of comet fragments in the SOHO image data, CCD monitoring
of older comets prone to violent outbursts, the imaging of new NEOs (Near Earth
Objects) that have quite often been revealed as comets - not asteroids - by
amateur astronomers, and the finding of recent comets impacting Jupiter.
