Celestial handbook : v. 2. Chamaeleon-Orion.--v. 3. Pavo-Vulpecula - Taschenbuch

1986, ISBN: 9780486236735

ID: 509513335

New York : Dover Publications, 1978, 1978. Book. Very Good. Soft cover. v.2 & 3 only & : ill. ; 24 cm. ; ISBN: LCCN: 77-82888 ; LC: QB64; Dewey: 523.8/9 ; OCLC: 3863848 ; color paper wrappers ; "This comprehensive coverage of the thousands of celestial objects outside our solar system. The objects are grouped according to constellation, and their definitions feature names, coordinates, classification, & physical description, along with hundreds of visual aids." ; "Burnham was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1931. His family moved to Prescott, Arizona in 1940, & he graduated from high school there in 1949. That was the culmination of his formal education. Always a shy person, he had few friends, never married,b& spent most of his time observing with his home-built telescope. In the fall of 1957 he received considerable local publicity when he discovered his first comet. This led to his being hired by Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona in 1958 to work on a survey of stellar proper motion using a blink comparator. While Burnham was working at Lowell, he and his co-worker, Norman G. Thomas, discovered five more comets (including 56P/Slaughter-Burnham), & numerous asteroids. In addition to his regular duties at the observatory, Burnham spent almost all of his free time working on the Celestial Handbook. His writing & his book were never officially supported by Lowell Observatory. Subtitled 'An Observer's Guide to the Universe Beyond the Solar System', the 2,138 page Burnham's Celestial Handbook combines a lengthy introduction to astronomy with catalog information for every constellation in the sky. Hundreds of photographic plates, tables, charts, and diagrams are included along with a vast amount of scientific and observing information, star lore, history, and even a little poetry. Thousands of stars & deep sky objects visible in small telescopes are covered in meticulous detail. Originally self-published in a loose-leaf serial format beginning in 1966, and with a revised edition by Dover Publications in 1978, the Celestial Handbook was well reviewed in amateur astronomy magazines & became a best seller in a very specialized field. In April 1979, the year after his book was published by Dover, Burnham received notice that the proper motion survey would soon be completed and that the observatory could not afford to keep him on in the position he had long held. Despite months of warning, he failed to make other arrangements and, after twenty-one years at Lowell, his job ended in December of that year. Unwilling to take the only position that was offered to him, that of janitor at the observatory, he left. Burnham was never able to recover personally, professionally, or financially after he lost the job at Lowell. Over the next few years, while sales of the Celestial Handbook were rapidly growing, Burnham's personal circumstances were steadily worsening. His shyness increased and he shunned all publicity, becoming even more reclusive. He bickered often with Dover about royalties and about possible new editions or translations of his book. He also seemed to become more bitter and depressed, isolating himself even further from his few friends and his family. Beginning in 1985, Burnham lived for a time in Phoenix, Arizona, but in May 1986 he left Phoenix & dropped out of sight completely, informing no one but his publisher of his whereabouts. Despite being the author of a successful book, Burnham spent the last years of his life in poverty & obscurity in San Diego, California, selling his paintings of cats at Balboa Park. His many devoted readers were completely unaware of his personal circumstances, in large part, because most people assumed that a different and unrelated Robert Burnham, who was an editor at Astronomy magazine, was the author of Burnham's Celestial Handbook. The real author died destitute and alone at the age of sixty-one. His family did not learn about his death (apparently by his choice) until two years later & didn't report it to the press even then because they were unaware." ; VG., New York : Dover Publications, 1978, 1978

Burnham's Celestial Handbook: An Observer's Guide to the Universe Beyond the Solar System, Vol. 3 - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0486236730

[SR: 210125], Paperback, [EAN: 9780486236735], Dover Publications, Dover Publications, Book, [PU: Dover Publications], 1979-01-01, Dover Publications, Volume III of a comprehensive three-part guide to celestial objects outside our solar system concludes with listings from Pavo to Vulpecula. While there are many books on stars, there is only one Celestial Handbook. Now completely revised through 1977, this unique and necessary reference is available once again to guide amateur and advanced astronomers in their knowledge and enjoyment of the stars.After an extensive introduction in Volume I, which gives the beginner enough information to follow about 80 percent of the body of the material, the author gives comprehensive coverage to the thousands of celestial objects outside our solar system that are within the range of telescopes in the two- to twelve-inch range.The objects are grouped according to the constellations in which they appear. Each constellation is divided into four subject sections: list of double and multiple stars; list of variable stars; list of star clusters, nebulae and galaxies; and descriptive notes. For each object the author gives names, celestial coordinates, classification, and full physical description. These, together with a star atlas, will help you find and identify almost every object of interest.But the joy of the book is the descriptive notes that follow. They cover history, unusual movements or appearance, and currently accepted explanations of such visible phenomena as white dwarfs, novae and super novae, cepheids, mira-type variables, dark nebulae, gaseous nebulae, eclipsing binary stars, the large Magellanic cloud, the evolution of a star cluster, and hundreds of other topics, many of which are difficult to find in one place. Hundreds of charts and other visual aids are included to help in identification. Over 300 photographs capture the objects and are works of beauty that reflect the enthusiasm that star gazers have for their subject.Robert Burnham, Jr., who was on the staff of the Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff, Arizona, conceived the idea of The Celestial Handbook decades ago, when he began assembling a notebook of all the major facts published about each celestial object. In its former, privately printed edition, this handbook was acclaimed as one of the most helpful books for astronomers on any level., 13443, Astronomy, 13439, Astronomy & Space Science, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13453, Solar System, 13439, Astronomy & Space Science, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491700, Astronomy & Astrophysics, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
