Description du produit

Revue de presse

'Thanks to the genius of James Mullaney, and the artistic sensibility of Wil Tirion, backyard stargazers can now enjoy endless hours of double- and multiple-star observing. Mullaney's vivid descriptions of the finest showpieces truly inspire; Tirion's design is both handsome and practical. The work is destined to become an instant classic. Bravo!' Stephen James O'Meara, author of the Deep-Sky Companions observing guides and columnist for Astronomy magazine

'… the definitive treasure map to the night sky's most alluring deep-sky gems … James Mullaney and Wil Tirion have produced the first celestial atlas to give double stars the prominence they deserve … an essential addition to any stargazer's observing kit … you'll never struggle to find a telescopic showpiece guaranteed to impress friends and relatives. This new work from James Mullaney, one of the world's most experienced double-star observers, and Wil Tirion, the dean of modern celestial cartographers, gives even the most experienced stargazer a lifetime supply of deep-sky wonders to explore and enjoy.' Richard Tresch Fienberg, Sky and Telescope

'… the atlas looks very nice - attractive, usable, full of great info. Can't wait to start using it!' Richard Tresch Fienberg, Sky and Telescope

'I was at Borders last night looking for a few astronomy books when I saw your Double Star Atlas! I couldn't buy it fast enough. … simply wonderful. A beautiful job! I love it! I can't wait to get out with the scope now … Thank you so much for such a wonderful atlas …' Doug Norton, amateur astronomer and wildlife enthusiast

'… a comprehensive and gorgeous work. … I'm glad to see some thought went into making this work useful to those of us who would take it into the field. … The Cambridge Double Star Atlas is a work of enduring value. … I can't wait to turn my 4-inch refractor toward the sky and check off the targets on Mullaney's list. I feel a bit of a thrill thinking about how many new pairs I'll encounter on my celestial trek.' Michael Bakich, Astronomy

'In collaboration with … Wil Tirion, [James Mullaney] has produced a splendid tome for the double-star aficionado, and indeed, the observer in general, since the usual galaxies, nebulae, clusters, and variable stars are also plotted. As might be expected, the maps are clear and unambiguous and drawn with a generous scale on good-quality paper, there being 60 A4 pages covering the whole sky. … For the double-star enthusiast this is a must-have.' The Observatory

'Great breakthroughs often stem from simple ideas. On reading The Origin of Species, Thomas Huxley famously remarked 'Why didn't I think of that?' That's how I felt on opening The Cambridge Double Star Atlas, a collaboration between longtime observer James Mullaney and renowned uranographer Wil Tirion. … [It] is a landmark work, and one that everybody who likes double stars should own.' Sky and Telescope

'… aimed at the amateur astronomer and well hits its mark … wonderfully laid out guideposts show the glow from the Milky Way equator, constellation boundaries, significant stars and, of course, the double stars themselves. … many clusters, nebulae and galaxies also grace the pages … whether you're on a star-finding challenge or a personal quest for striking images, The Cambridge Double Star Atlas … is a fabulous resource.' www.universetoday.com

'The Cambridge Double Star Atlas is an accessible guide to these often-neglected night sky objects. … a worthy addition to any observer's book collection … This is an immense treasure trove of information that will keep you busy for a long time.' Sky at Night Magazine

'At last it is refreshing to know that now, available in a single volume for the amateur astronomer there is a complete high quality modern atlas dedicated to the pursuit of double star observing … I would thoroughly recommend that all amateur astronomers own a copy of this atlas.' FAS Newsletter

'Observers new to the field will certainly welcome the inclusion of a list of 133 double and multiple star showpieces. The arrangement of this section in the constellation order and the inclusion of comments on each showpiece make this perhaps the most useful section of the book.' Martin Nicholson, Journal of the British Astronomical Association

'… a very useful, durable guide … highly recommended to the beginning observer and as a reference work for the more experienced astronomer.' Contemporary Physics

Présentation de l'éditeur

This magnificent atlas contains the most attractive and interesting double and multiple stars for viewing with binoculars and telescopes. It is a must-have for stargazers who want to explore these fascinating objects. The first modern star atlas devoted to double and multiple stars, it plots over 2000 selected pairs of stars, each labeled with discoverer, catalog, and/or observatory designations. A superb introduction to this important class of celestial objects, it is spiral bound and printed in red-light friendly colours, making it ideal for use in the field. Written by experienced observer James Mullaney, and beautifully illustrated by renowned celestial cartographer Wil Tirion, it provides an easy-to-use 'celestial roadmap' to locate and identify double and multiple stars. Other deep-sky objects such as star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies are also included, and are color-coded for easy recognition and identification, making this an all-purpose observing reference.
