Here is a one-volume guide to just about everything computer-related for amateur astronomers! Today’s amateur astronomy is inextricably linked to personal computers. Computer-controlled "go-to" telescopes are inexpensive. CCD and webcam imaging make intensive use of the technology for capturing and processing images. Planetarium software provides information and an easy interface for telescopes. The Internet offers links to other astronomers, information, and software. The list goes on and on. Find out here how to choose the best planetarium program: are commercial versions really better than freeware? Learn how to optimise a go-to telescope, or connect it to a lap-top. Discover how to choose the best webcam and use it with your telescope. Create a mosaic of the Moon, or high-resolution images of the planets... Astronomy with a Home Computer is designed for every amateur astronomer who owns a home computer, whether it is running Microsoft Windows, Mac O/S or Linux. It doesn’t matter what kind of telescope you own either - a small refractor is just as useful as a big "go-to" SCT for most of the projects in this book.
Long before he took command of the Starship Enterprise™, Captain Jean-Luc Picard led another proud vessel through the uncharted regions of the galaxy: the U.S.S. Stargazer. Thrust unexpectedly into the center seat, the twenty-eight-year-old Picard must live up to the challenges of starship command—and a crew that hasn't yet learned to trust him The pirate known as the White Wolf has been wreaking havoc across several sectors, and the inexperienced Picard has been given the assignment to stop him. Surprised at getting such a challenge, Picard soon learns that he is expected to fail in his duty and have his captaincy disgraced before it can even begin. Given an untested crew and an impossible mission, Picard must beat the odds and apprehend the White Wolf—but the pirate keeps a shocking secret that leaves Picard to make a deadly decision.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Stargazer accompany engineer Phigus Simenon, a member of the lizard-like Gnalish, to his home planet where he intends to participate in a survival competition. The test will allow the winners to contribute to the gene pool and carry on the species. But Simenon soons realizes that his chances of survival have been sabotaged. Someone is out to kill him, and suddenly it is up to Jean Luc and the Stargazer crew to save him. Meanwhile the Stargazer itself is also in mortal danger. In an effort to save a research vessel, the Stargazer has locked on to the smaller ship, which is being pulled further and further into a deadly phenomenon every minute. Lieutenant Commander Wu, sitting in the captain's seat for the first time in her career, is forced to make a series of life-or-death decisions . . .
