About this book

The Philip's Solar System Observer's Guide is a practical and colourful; introduction to our 'corner' of the Universe. It describes how to observe; not only the planets but also the Moon, Sun, comets, meteors, asteroids and; other objects found within our Solar System. It is aimed at users of; binoculars and small to medium telescopes. Each chapter is devoted to a different object, and in each case the author; explains how to find the object, how to observe it, what you can expect to; see and how you can record your observations. The chapters are illustrated; with digital images, photographs and sketches obtained by both amateur and; professional astronomers. Dates are provided for special events, such as eclipses, transits*, oppositions* and so on, where appropriate, so that the reader can make the; most of the best opportunities available. Where specialist equipment is; required - for example, when observing the Sun - this is clearly explained. A separate chapter provides an overview of the equipment and techniques; needed by most Solar System observers, and includes tips on dealing with; light pollution and poor seeing.
