Much modern astronomical observational work is done photographically. This book reproduces a broad selection of photographs to a high standard in an accessible format, not only as illustrations but also to demonstrate how to use photographs in problem solving.This collection of exercises in practical astronomy, based on the Edinburgh University Teaching Packages, is intended for university students at first year and intermediate level. Using modern high class photographs it is designed as tutorial material to match standard courses given in the UK and USA.An important feature of the package is that it is composed of authentic material such as is currently used for advanced research. This gives the student a taste of the excitement of discovery, and at the same time, genuine experience of the labour and patience needed to produce results.
