The fourth edition of Professor Kitchin's popular Astrophysical Techniques retains the earlier editions' comprehensive, clearly understandable account of the instruments and techniques used in modern astronomy and astrophysics. This fully illustrated text starts from first principles and explains each method up to the point readers can begin practical work. Many new instruments and techniques are included for the first time. Exercises with answers are used to reinforce the ideas presented. An extensive bibliography, appendices of tables of astrophysical data, and a new section on Web sites and online resources make this ideal as both a textbook and a reference.
