The first edition was widely acclaimed in its dual role as an introductory textbook and beginner's guide for serious amateur astronomers. This revised and extended edition of Telescopes and Techniques is updated for technical changes in astronomical instrumentation. It fulfils the need for a more structured and academic introduction to astronomy than is provided by 'amateur' astronomy primers. It will be bought both by first-year astronomy students and would-be amateur astronomers.
