NEVER POINT YOUR OPEN TELESCOPE or EYEs AT THE SUN
 
THE HEAT GENERATED by the SOLAR IMAGE WILL MELT or SHATTER ANYTHING. SPECIAL TELESCOPE REFLECTING COVERS ARE NECESSARY TO VIEW THE SUN. NEVER USE THE HERSHILIAN WEDGE and DARK FILTERS TO OBSERVE THE SUN.  Never point binoculars or any optics at the SUN. The Solar Energy can shatter cemented lenses. SPECIAL GLASSES SHOULD BE WARN DURING TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSES.

Joe's Book Selections.
 
If you really want a look into Astronomy by Stars, Galaxies and Constellations and the correct methods of observing for data please look at this book and the series of books by this author.
 
"The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Stars", by James B. Kaler, Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-81803-6.
 
The above book tells all about the deep problems that hamper good Astronomy viewing and research.  It is one thing to collect light in our buckets, it is with low probability that any one can make sense of the Universe from the floating Earth-Sun orbits.
 
J B Kaler has an excellent series of books on all Amateur accessable Astronomy Techniques.
 
Another book by Malcolm S. Longair from Cambridge University Press is called "THE COSMIC CENTURY", A History of Astrophysics and Cosmology. This book covers the 19th century attempts to create astronomy. ISBN 0-521-47436-1
 
These books are available on Amazon, Ebay, Google, Astromart, Cloudy Nights, and other book stores on the Internet.


Astronomy Telescope and Parts
 
Astronomical telescope kit parts are the order of the day.
 
 If you need an aluminum mirror cell for your telescope or a set of finder mount brackets we will machine one from scratch. You finish them at home in your spare time or we can machine them for you for additional cost. We can also cast you special order telescope mirror cells, finder brackets, rotation rings, and adorning parts.
Over to the LEFT on this page will be a list of each of my Web Sites on Specifics of Astronomy, Photometry, Spectrometry, Domes, Telescopes, LX200 Stuff, and much more.
