Anyone get new books for Christmas?
      #5595213 - 12/29/12 10:04 PM

My 18 year old daughter got me a new Astronomy book for Christmas.

UNIVERSE The Definitive visual guide. DK books Smithsonian.

At first I thought it would be a pictorial Hubble book, but it is very informative with coverage from planets to star types to galaxy types. Very informative read much like the Tv series How the UNiverse works with Mike Rowe narrator.
Excellent pics from many scopes not just the space telescopes.

My girl has kind of made a habit of getting me astro books for gifts lately and I am not complaining.

My wife gave me the latest edition of Peter Birrens "Objects in the Heavens".

And I ordered the "Great Atlas" for myself, but that one is still in the mail.

I bought a great copy of Wilkins & Moore's "The Moon" (1955) from a fellow CN'er as a present for myself; does that count?

Hi Robert - I would have to agree with you I think I paid maybe $10 for an absolutely unused mint condition addition with dust jacket! Come to think of it I need to get a copy of the Cambridge Double Star Atlas and that would be a good place to look,g ..... Thanks and Happy New Year... Tony

Forgive my offering a response to a question not directed to me, but...
This is a first-rate book IMO. Photos of a lot of DSOs done by Veherenberg, all at the same scale for comparison purposes. A lot of supplementary photos and info, as well, plus a long commentary by the author. It's a big hardcover with ultra-high quality glossy paper. A really wonderful book, and well worth having. Too bad it's out of print.

I used to own this book and must have given it away some years ago. Looking now there are two editions, 1978 by Sky Publishing and 1984 by Cambridge University Press.

Any comments on which is better?

Thanks

Absolutely agree! This is a wonderful book to have in your collection. I was fortunate to get a copy that is in very nice condition! Nice touch, is the sky charts inside the front and back covers.

Yes I got it used from a Amazon vendor. I bought it after reading comments in this forum by Rick, Carol, and others! The book was in very good condition except it appears to have been used at the scope, and some of pages appear slightly warped as you would see due to moisture. You can kinda feel it more than see it. I guess this is a common issue buying used observing books. However, the price was $7

Okay its not Christmas anymore but I was in HPB's today looking in the Astronomy section. I decided to get another 3 volume set of Burnham's Celestial Handbook. I had these at one time but have no idea what happened to them. These were the 1977/78 versions. I know there are mixed feelings on these but the price was good

Carol - That's a nice one and it is one I'd like to get too. I stopped off from proctoring a test Saturday into HBP's. Love those bookstores. I picked up a brand new Cambridge Illustrated Dict of Astronomy, hard copy with dustcover. Only $3.49 plus tax Maybe I'll get lucky and get the Hershel 400 for a similar price ... probably not, g.... Good book and glad you got it... Tony

There's "mixed feelings" about everything. There's those who are right and those who are wrong. Folks down on Burnham's are just plain wrong. IMHO, of course, but as the MIAITU my opinion also corresponds with the truth. That is, unless I disagree with Jon Isaacs, according to Jon. But, in my opinion, he wrong on that score.

BCH is indescribably fantabulous. You done good. Real good.

"The Grand design". Written by Hawking and Mlodinov. Click here for a wikipedia article.

It seems there is (also) a little bit of a discussion about the fact if Hawking really written this book.
