This book was originally for sale exclusively by Adirondack Astronomy, but since they are now "out of business" the unsold books were sent to Starizona for sale by them. A free download of the book's PDF-document file is available (see below).

This Second Edition has a larger page format (to accomodate pictures and graphs that tend to be wider than they are tall), is 70% longer (253 pages), has more easily understood explanations for more material, includes an expanded glossary (9 pages) and index (10 pages), has more appendices (10), and all pictures and graphs are in color (no center insert of color versions of pictures and graphs, as in the First Edition). If you are considering buying the book you should first download a free PDF-document file and review it to see if it's worth the price of a "hard copy."

1) Free download of book's PDF-document (zip-file):  EOA2
