About this book

A brand new pack for the amateur Solar System observer. It contains three essential items for exploring and enjoying our corner of the Universe. Philip's Solar System Observer's Guide This practical 224-page illustrated guide is suitable for observers with small- to medium-sized telescopes, or binoculars; it can be used throughout the world. Peter Grego, a well-known writer on astronomy and an experienced observer, shares his enthusiasm and expertise in a straightforward and informative book. It describes how to observe not only the planets but also the Moon, Sun, comets, meteors, asteroids and all other objects found within our Solar System. A separate chapter is devoted to each type of object, and in each case the author explains how and when to find the object, how to observe it, what you can expect to see and how you can record your observations. Peter Grego is the editor of Popular Astronomy magazine and Director of the Lunar Section of the Society for Popular Astronomy. He writes and illustrates a regular column in Astronomy Now and is the author of several books. He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. Peter lives in Rednal, near Birmingham. Philip's Map of the Solar System A new large-format chart that uses mapping returned from space probes to provide a close-up view of the Solar System. The Sun, Moon and planets, as well as selected asteroids and comets, are illustrated using maps and images returned from space probes as well as clear, colourful artwork. The detailed and informative captions explain what's on view. Philip's Solar System Phenomena Poster A magnificent, full-colour, A1-sized wall poster featuring the top 25 phenomena to observe within the Solar System. Included are solar and lunar eclipses, aurorae and fireballs, as well as the planets and their satellites, comets, asteroids and our own Moon. Each phenomenon is illustrated with an image obtained using typical amateur equipment, and the picture is accompanied by details about how it was taken, and a symbol indicating the type of equipment - if any - needed to observe it.
