David Woods. Life 3. Luce sulla guerra. It provides essential hints and tips about what to look for when buying on a budget - the best are now excellent value, but they all lack an astronomer's advice about setting them up and using them. Astronomy with a Budget Telescope was first published in , since then technology has moved on substantially. The main factors are first the availability of fairly inexpensive computer-controlled "go-to" telescopes which after setting up can automatically locate any celestial objects with reasonable accuracy.
Second, digital cameras have now almost completely displaced "wet" film cameras, and some of them are particularly well-suited to astronomical use.
Third, prices are down and quality is up! This new edition is revised and extended to include using a low-cost "go-to" telescope - there are various pitfalls to be avoided - and how this class of instrument can make amateur astronomy more accessible to those with limited time at their disposal. It also discusses the new breed of mid-range digital cameras that include powerful on-board processing and image enhancement software that used to be available only to people with advanced astronomical CCD cameras.
Finally, there are detailed reviews and test reports on some of the budget telescopes that are available on Main Street and by mail order. He has presented his BBC TV program, The Sky at Night continuously since , which has been broadcast every four weeks since, making it the world's longest running television program of any kind.
Patrick has written more than astronomy book. In recognition of Patrick's contribution to the popularization of science over the past 50 years, he was knighted in November
