This popular student text is now published in its third edition. It has been revised and extensively updated to include a large amount of new material on the most recent developments in the field.
Professor Kitchin has provided a unified introductory view of astrophysical investigation which represents an essential guide to all astrophysical methods and techniques. The author's 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 book also includes an extensive bibliography to enable further study. Appendices of tables of astrophysical data provide an excellent reference source.
