Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 26, 2002 - Science - 241 pages
This book is a sequel to the successful title Small Astronomical Observatories, by Patrick Moore. It contains detailed descriptions of more innovative and interesting observatories built by amateur astronomers. Almost every serious amateur astronomer wants a fixed observatory of some sort; this book provides the ideas and constructional details for building small fixed observatories. As a bonus, the accompanying CD-ROM contains the entire first book, Small Astronomical Observatories. Written in a clear and entertaining style, this makes an interesting read, even for the non-astronomer.
