Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. Stars have been identified by astronomers for centuries, but many of those celestial names have disappeared from modern star catalogues. This text goes in search of the forgotten and misplaced stars discovered and named by such pioneering astronomers as Johannes Bayer, Nicholas-Louis de Lacaille, and John Flamsteed. Explained in detail is how and why certain stars have seemed to vanish from scientific view since the first modern star atlas and catalogue was published in 1603. Also included in this volume are three sets of seminal star charts in the history of astronomy: a complete set of Johannes Bayer s 49 star charts from the early 17th century; enlarged and detailed copies of Nicholas-Louis de Lacaille s famous 18th-century chart of the Southern Hemisphere; and the complete set of 27 charts from John Flamsteed s star atlas. Lost Stars also provides information about how and why the 88 constellations received the names by which they are now identified. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : This book identifies the 'lost stars' of Bayer, Lacaille, Flamsteed, and other pioneering astronomers of the 17th and 18th centuries, and explains how and why these stars seem to have disappeared from modern star catalogues and atlases. In a style that will appeal to the novice as well as the seasoned astronomer, the author provides an introduction to early modern astronomy. The book reviews the composition and history of the 88 constellations recognised by the International Astronomical Union. In an account for each constellation the author includes a synopsis, in chart form, that tells the reader at a glance how many lettered or numbered stars there are in the constellation, the magnitude and catalogue numbers for those stars, and who first lettered or numbered each star. The author then describes the stars that have been 'lost' or mislabelled and explains, in detail, their troublesome status.
