Want to learn astronomy the easy way from a real rocket scientist? If so check out my new e-book "Astronomy for Everyone".
I'm the author and retired NASA scientist/engineer who worked at the George C. Marshal Space Flight Center for 30 years. I've worked on a number of projects including one of the first space telescopes (Spacelab "Astro").
I've also an avid astrophotographer with imagery in a number of publications including: National Geographic, Astronomy and Sky and Telescope magazines, Better Photography and Space.com.
My goal was to bring astronomy to everyone in language easily understood by both the beginning and non-astronomer alike.
The content of the book includes:
Practical advice on how to locate celestial objects
Which telescope is best for you
What you can expect to see
Discussion of celestial objects such as nebulae, star clusters, and galaxies
A pictorial sampling of the Universe as seen from the Owl Mountain Observatory
Resources and references giving links to free astronomy software and the Owl Mountain Publishing discussion group where I will attempt to answer questions related to the content of the book.
The book is available worldwide for immediate reading on a multitude of devices including: Kindle tablets, iOS, PC, iPad, iPhone and Android using the Kindle Reader free App.
