Description

Here is a one-volume guide to just about everything computer-related for amateur astronomers!

Today’s amateur astronomy is inextricably linked to personal computers.  Computer-controlled "go-to" telescopes are inexpensive. CCD and webcam imaging make intensive use of the technology for capturing and processing images.  Planetarium software provides information and an easy interface for telescopes.  The Internet offers links to other astronomers, information, and software.  The list goes on and on.

Find out here how to choose the best planetarium program: are commercial versions really better than freeware?   Learn how to optimise a go-to telescope, or connect it to a lap-top.  Discover how to choose the best webcam and use it with your telescope.  Create a mosaic of the Moon, or high-resolution images of the planets...

Astronomy with a Home Computer is designed for every amateur astronomer who owns a home computer, whether it is running Microsoft Windows, Mac O/S or Linux.  It doesn’t matter what kind of telescope you own either - a small refractor is just as useful as a big "go-to" SCT for most of the projects in this book.
