How do you choose your first telescope? Or build one from first principles? What can the deep sky offer you season by season? How do you get started in astrophotography? And progress to CCD imaging? The Guide to Amateur Astronomy answers the questions of the novice and the experienced amateur astronomer in one easy-to-use and comprehensive account. Throughout, the emphasis is on practical methods to get you started and then develop your skills, with lavish illustrations to show you just what is possible. This second edition of the highly successful Guide has been fully revised and updated. It now includes observational techniques on everything from the most basic visual studies of the planets to CCD imaging of the most-distant objects in the Universe. A handy review of the colourful new world of astro-software for the home computer is now also provided. From guidelines for the care and adjustment of your telescope through to lists of the spectral classification of stars, amateur astronomy societies and clubs, all the information you need for your voyage of discovery and revelation is provided in this self-contained, helpful guide. (Jack Newton and Philip Teece, 2nd Edition, Cambridge Univ. Press, Hardcover, 331 pages. ISBN: 0521444926)

This book is GREAT, but I have no current need for it any longer. It's in excellent condition, and it by far the most in-depth and helpful book I've used. It sells at Barnes & Noble for $48, but I'm looking for $40 (including usps priority shipping).
