About this book

This practical astronomy observing notebook is aimed at 'deep sky observers' – people who have been inspired by recent television programmes, as well as those who already do it. The Stargazer's Notebook is a book for those who know the basics and want to develop and improve their observing skills. Use The Stargazer's Notebook to help plan what deep sky targets you want to seek out in a particular session, as well as plan long term goals. Includes over 45 observation forms for making notes and drawings of what you are seeing and when.

In addition, other record pages will help keep track of what equipment you have (and what you would like to have), what objects you hope to observe, as well as wish lists of observing locations, books, apps etc. Useful reference information includes explanations of universal time, field of view and eye piece equations, and seeing and transparency scales, plus the constellations with abbreviations. The Stargazer's Notebook is the perfect gift for every stargazer.

Biography

Paul G Abel is an astronomer, mathematician and a co-presenter on the BBC's The Sky at Night. Paul has written for many popular astronomy magazines promoting amateur astronomy and the science that amateurs can contribute to the field. He regularly gives talks to various astronomical societies and speaks at astronomical events. Paul has an observatory in his garden (or converted garden shed, to give it its real name), which houses his telescope. From there he makes frequent observations of the Moon and the planets. He is a visual observer and prefers to draw what he sees and records his own observations in log books. Dr Abel is currently an Astronomer in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Leicester, where he teaches and looks into the mysteries of Hawking Radiation. He trained as a mathematician, and his PhD is in an area of Theoretical Physics concerned with evaporating black holes. Paul is currently assistant director of the Saturn section of the British Astronomical Association, and a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.
