This Website is about viewing the Universe using the new technologies available to amateur astronomers. The wonders of the Cosmos are now readily available to everyone. The world of amateur astronomy has undergone revolutionary changes in the last decade. New technologies now allow the amateur astronomer, using a modest telescope and readily available equipment, to view the Universe with the detail and clarity of the world's largest professional telescopes of only a decade ago. These new technological developments include the charged coupled device ( CCD ), desktop personal computers, powerful software, and the Internet. With these new technologies, the amateur astronomer can make serious contributions to the science of astronomy through supernova and asteroid research

25. Astronomy In Dubai
Dubai Amateur Astronomers is for UAE residents who own telescopes and offers basic information about the hobby and science.
Astronomy in Dubai
You've reached the one stop for amateur astronomers in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates. Introductions first. I'm Samson David, 26 years old and finally pursuing the hobby I have always dreamed about. I've had a fascination with the stars ever since I was a child and always wondered about the millions of distant suns that shine over us each and every night. I have just purchased my telescope over the internet. It is a Russian TAL 200K telescope. Now all I am waiting for is clear skies and cooler weather. If you live in Dubai, or the UAE and are an amateur like me, do drop me a line and we can exchange what little we know in hopes of better understanding our new hobby. If you are a professional, please help this newcomer understand what he is supposed to be doing. As I get better at what I do, I am going to start putting up pictures, and a whole bunch of information for astronomers in Dubai. Did you know that there are virtually millions of stars that you can see up to magnitude -13..? WellI never knew that till I got my telescope. The prices of scopes here are quite expensive. However, there are ways to get them cheaper. Trust me.. I've searched for the better part of two years for the perfect scope. Finally, if you are reading this and are even slightly interested in Astronomy, do take a minute to join the Dubai Astro group at Topica. It used to be hosted on Yahoo, but I changed that due to some email problems and lots of spam. There's a link below.

Check out Astronomy Boy's guide to getting started in astronomy, including telescope buying advice , lists of informative web sites books for newcomers, and local astronomy clubs and observatories CG-5 Mount Improvements The CG-5 German equatorial mount is a Chinese-made clone of the well-known Vixen Great Polaris (GP) mount. Although the CG-5 is quite popular, many examples suffer from sticky movements in both the right ascension and declination axes. Astronomy Boy shows you how to smooth out the motions of your CG-5.

Telescopes and Astronomy
UPDATED: 21.02.03 Formed in April 1994 by myself, Matthew Lovell. I had found buying an amateur instrument to look at the stars involved limited information, high prices, long waiting periods and sales people generally weren't knowledgeable about the instruments themselves or astronomy. I decided to offer a service which would cover all of these problem areas.
To make the most of your instrument, refer to the contents for tips.

Information for the beginning backyard stargazer. Contains informative articles, book reviews, advice Category Science Astronomy Amateur Beginners......Welcome to amateur astronomy.Net, a web site dedicated to the beginning backyardstargazer. This site contains essential information about amateur astronomy.
Welcome to Amateur Astronomy.Net, a web site dedicated to the beginning backyard stargazer. This site contains essential information about amateur astronomy. It covers such topics as how to choose a telescope and use it properly, to observational techniques and building your own telescope. Various other subjects of interest are covered along with numerous links to online resources. This site is for you, enjoy!
Over the last few years amateur astronomy as been growing rapidly. Since the return of comet Halley in 1986, thousands have joined the ranks of the backyard stargazer. Recently the appearance of two bright comets, namely Hyakutake and Hale-Bopp have continued to spark interest. Hollywood as always, capitalizes on public interest and has released an onslaught of space movies dealing with comets, asteroids and the odd alien or two. Further enticing the public's interest in astronomy and space.
But by far in my opinion, the biggest champion in revitalizing public interest in astronomy as been the tantalizing and beautiful images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope. Coupled with today's information age, amateur astronomy has experienced exponential growth.
With a new interest, comes the need for knowledge. And in the spirit of the information age, it's what this web site will provide.

Amateur Astronomy
Amateur astronomy is a fascinating hobby and can be an introduction to several practical and useful technologies. Instruments used in ground based astronomy range from the unaided eye, to common video cameras, to large computer controlled telescopes using adaptive optics . The hard part is finding dark skies that are conveniently located. Although we can't provide dark skies , we can help introduce you to this awe inspiring activity! Getting started!
Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to see and use many telescopes and talk to other amateur astronomers, is to go to a "star party"! See the Calendar of Star Parties at Sky and Telescope. Monthly subscription to popular magazines such as Astronomy Magazine and Sky and Telescope will keep you informed of upcoming celestial events. A pocket sized "field guide" or a star atlas is also an indispensible tool. If you know of an unused telescope stashed away in someones attic, ask to borrow it! Binoculars are also a good starting instrument. Astronomy Groups and Organizations
Although there are several professional observatories scattered throughout the world, complimented by a host of satellites dedicated to space science, several gaps exist in the area of observing
