TYB Books -- Amateur & Backyard Astronomy Books

TYB Books -- Main Page

I never had much opportunity to do amateur astronomy myself.  I grew up near Cleveland, and that is not a great place for doing astronomy: too many cloudy nights.  Still, not every night, and there were times when I could get out.  I still think it is one of the best ways to learn astronomy, hands on and all that.  So I've given here a list of books gathered especially with the amateur in mind.  And when you're done with these, check out my other astronomy books pages, too.
