Turn left at Orion a hundred night sky objects to see in a small telescope-- and how to find them by Guy Consolmagno ( Book )
19 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A guidebook for beginning amateur astronomers, Turn Left at Orion provides all the information you need to observe the Moon, the planets and a whole host of celestial objects. Large format diagrams show these objects exactly as they appear in a small telescope (50-70 mm or 2-3" aperture) and for each object there is information on the current state of our astronomical knowledge." "Thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition contains a chapter describing spectacular deep sky objects visible from the southern hemisphere, as well as tips on how to observe the upcoming transits of Venus. It also includes a discussion of Dobsonian telescopes, with hints on using your personal computer and the internet as aids for planning an observing session." "Unlike many guides to the night sky, this book is specifically written for observing using small telescopes. Clear and easy-to-use, this book will appeal to skywatchers of all ages and backgrounds. No previous knowledge of astronomy is needed."--BOOK JACKET
Turn left at Orion : hundreds of night sky objects to see in a home telescope-- and how to find them by Guy Consolmagno ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With over 100,000 copies sold since first publication, this is one of the most popular astronomy books of all time. It is a unique guidebook to the night sky, providing all the information you need to observe a whole host of celestial objects. With a new spiral binding, this edition is even easier to use outdoors at the telescope and is the ideal beginner's book. Keeping its distinct one-object-per-spread format, this edition is also designed for Dobsonian telescopes, as well as for smaller reflectors and refractors, and covers Southern hemisphere objects in more detail. Large-format eyepiece views, positioned side-by-side, show objects exactly as they are seen through a telescope, and with improved directions, updated tables of astronomical information and an expanded night-by-night Moon section, it has never been easier to explore the night sky on your own"--

God's mechanics : how scientists and engineers make sense of religion by Guy Consolmagno ( )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In God's Mechanics, Brother Guy tells the stories of those who identify with the scientific mindset-so-called "techies"--While practicing religion. A full fledged techie himself, he relates some classic philosophical reflections, his interviews with dozens of fellow techies, and his own personal take on his Catholic beliefs to provide, like a set of "worked out sample problems," the hard data on the challenges and joys of embracing a life of faith as a techie. And he also gives a roadmap of the traps that can befall an unwary techie believer. With lively prose and wry humor, Brother Guy shows how he not only believes in God but gives religion an honored place alongside science in his life. This book offers an engaging look at how-and why-scientists and those with technological leanings can hold profound, "unprovable" religious beliefs while working in highly empirical fields. Through his own experience and interviews with other scientists and engineers who profess faith, Brother Guy explores how religious beliefs and practices make sense to those who are deeply rooted in the world of technology
