Spectroscopy: The Key to the Stars : Reading the Lines in Stellar Spectra, Paperback / softback Book

Spectroscopy: The Key to the Stars : Reading the Lines in Stellar Spectra Paperback / softback

Part of the The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series series

Description

This is the first non-technical book on spectroscopy written specifically for practical amateur astronomers.

It includes all the science necessary for a qualitative understanding of stellar spectra, but avoids a mathematical treatment which would alienate many of its intended readers.

Any amateur astronomer who carries out observational spectroscopy and who wants a non-technical account of the physical processes which determine the intensity and profile morphology of lines in stellar spectra will find this is the only book written specially for them.

It is an ideal companion to existing books on observational amateur astronomical spectroscopy.
