By Dobbins, Parker and Capen.
Product Information: 8.50" by 11.00, 215 pages, hardbound.
This book systematically covers amateur observation and photography of the planets. Several hundred photographs and line drawings of exceptional quality compliment the clearly written text. Unlike deep-sky observing, meaningful observations can be made in your own backyard. One of the authors of this book, Donald Parker, routinely takes pictures from his home in Coral Gables, Florida which have been favorably compared to those taken at professional observatories under the best sky conditions.
