Setting-up a small observatory : from concept to construction by David Arditti( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every amateur astronomer who is considering a purpose-built observatory will find this book absolutely invaluable during both the planning and the construction stages. Drawing on David Arditti's practical experience and that of many other amateur astronomers, it gives invaluable help in making all the important decisions." "To begin with, Setting-up a Small Observatory addresses what you really need from an observatory, whether to build or buy, what designs you should consider, and where you should site it. Uniquely, it also considers the aesthetics of an amateur observatory: how to make it fit in with your home, garden, and yard, and even disguising it as a more common garden building if necessary." "There's also a wealth of practical details for constructing and equipping your small observatory - everything from satisfying local planning laws and building codes through to making sure that your completed observatory is well-equipped, convenient, and comfortable to use." "Whether you are considering a simple low-tech approach to an observatory, or aspiring to a sophisticated dome, there is something here for you."--Jacket
