About this book

A Spectroscopic Atlas of the Stars: A Pocket Field Guide is a standard reference book for all amateur astronomers interested in practical spectroscopy or spectrography. For the first time in one place, it identifies more than 70 (northern hemisphere) bright stars that are suitable observational targets for both amateurs and astronomy students. Finder charts are provided for locating these sometimes-familiar stars. Data for each star includes labelled stellar spectra, a spectral profile with spectral lines identified. These are conveniently laid out on a single page, opposite tables of spectroscopic properties, and lines and wavelengths identified. This is the first Spectral Atlas designed for amateur astronomers. It is equally relevant to college undergraduates, being intended to familiarize astronomers of any age and level of knowledge with labelled stellar spectra and their different properties. It contains much information about stars which is hard to find or inaccessible to most people.

Aus den Rezensionen: "! entsprechende Literatur speziell fur Amateure ! verspricht ! einen Auberblick uber die Spektren ! richtet sich an den Anfanger in der Spektroskopie. ! Alle Spektren wurden fur beinahe den gesamten visuellen Wellenlangenbereich in niedriger spektraler Auflosung aufgenommen. Das ist eine schone Leistung des Autors und motiviert den Anfanger in der Spektroskopie zur Nachahmung. ... Hier hat ein fleissiger Beobachter seine Daten zusammengetragen und als Buch veroffentlicht ! recht umfangreich - es verweist grosstenteils auf das Glossar." (Thomas Eversberg, in: Sterne und Weltraum, August 2010, S. 104)
