The Astronomical Unit



book cover

For Louise, Tim and Siân, to whom I was a stranger whilst I was preparing this book.

AstroFAQs is designed to get you "up and running" in astronomy as quickly as possible. I have put together a selection of frequently-asked questions, along with direct, simple, and understandable answers. The questions were all gleaned from astronomical society meetings, internet forums, and from my experience in teaching astronomy. If you have just bought an astronomical telescope, or are even thinking of doing so, then this little book is just what you need to help you through the jargon, science and practice of practical astronomy.
