About this book

Viewing and Imaging the Solar System: A Complete Guide for Amateur Astronomers is for amateur astronomers who are beginners or who want to move beyond the beginner level and develop better observing skills. Newcomers to astronomy are almost always wowed by sights such as the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter, but have little idea how to find Solar System objects for themselves, or whatequipment they will need to see or even photograph such objects. Viewing and Imaging the Solar System makes it easy for less advanced astronomers to achieve success quickly by observing and photographing the Solar System rather than trying to find deep sky objects. It is written by an expert on the Solar System, who gained experience by teaching others how to make the most of relatively simple and low-cost equipment. Viewing and Imaging the Solar System presents the material in a way that is both easy to digest and entertaining. Its goal is to help the reader get the most out of observing and photographing a variety of Solar System objects, from the Moon and easily observable major planets and moons to the harder to observe smaller planets, asteroids, and comets.

Contents

- How to Find the Solar System
- Looking at the Planets
- Photographing the Planets
- What You Can Reasonably Expect to See
- Observing Asteroids and Dwarf Planets
