Review 'In its various incarnations it has been a constant companion for my entire scientific career ... Compared to the last edition, the new version of the handbook has almost double the number of pages and represents a considerable expansion of the content of each chapter. Examples of improvement include updated lists of Solar System natural satellites and high-redshift objects. There are also completely new sections such as the list of extra-solar planets, none of which had been detected when the last edition was produced. ... there is a lot of material, particularly that pertaining to the basic tools of an instrument developer and observer in space astronomy, that, to my knowledge, is not usefully collected in any other single volume. It is certainly worth purchasing by anyone wanting a ready reference for basic instrumentation and observational techniques ... I have no doubt that my copy of the 3rd edition will be as well-used as the previous one.' The Observatory

'Overall this is an excellent book, one that for most astronomers, whether professional or amateur, should take price of place on his or her bookshelf as a valuable reference for years to come.' Journal of the British Astronomical Association

Book Description Fully updated with data from space-based observations and a comprehensive index and bibliography, this third edition contains the most frequently used information in modern astrophysics. This handbook will be an essential reference for graduate students, researchers and professionals working in astronomy and the space sciences.

I have to say I love this idea, it solved a big problem.
