AstroFaqs : Questions Astronomers Frequently Ask (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)Code: ALG0735
Auteurs: Stephen F. Tonkin
Korte beschrijving: it has an enormous amount of information concentrated into relatively few pages. The format, similar to an internet FAQ, makes it easy to navigate. Whilst nothing is covered in great depth, the book serves its purpose of giving enough information to get a new astronomer up and running. I refer to this book a lot and expect to keep doing so.
