Venus and Mercury, and How to Observe Them


Venus and Mercury have long been regarded as difficult targets for amateur observers, but advances in commercially-made telescopes have brought them within the skills of observers of only moderate experience. Peter Grego's fascinating book presents an up-to-date, detailed description of the history and geology of the so-called inferior planets, and provides the latest, most useful advice on observing and recording them with commercially-available telescopes and cameras. The book also offers a wealth of detailed practical information on every aspect of observing, from safely targeting the two planets, through visual observing, to sketching and electronic imaging.

Peter Grego has recently written The Moon and How to Observe it for Springer, and also has eight other published astronomy books to his credit. Living in the UK, he is a well-known writer and practical amateur astronomer.
