Summary

Providing a thorough account of the instruments and techniques used in astronomy and astrophysics, this textbook is ideal for both undergraduate and early postgraduate courses. Professor Kitchin has provided a unified introductory view of astrophysical investigation. The fully illustrated text starts from first principles and explains each method up to the point at which the reader can begin practical work with the equipment and even start designing it. The new edition version provides a complete overhaul of the material, by either reducing or eliminating the space given to older technologies. It also introduces and expands on the modern detection methods; web-based databases; and astronomical resources.
