From Authored by a professional astronomer and writer, this volume readily fills the need for an astronomy dictionary. Coverage encompasses named astronomical objects, terms and abbreviations most frequently encountered in astronomy, constellations, principal observatories, space missions, and biographical sketches for 70 well-known individuals in the history of the field.  Written at a level accessible to the general reader, the 1,300 alphabetically arranged entries range in length from one sentence (simple definitions) to several paragraphs (entries on planets). Specialist terms and acronyms are clearly explained. Sample entries include Air shower, 719 Albert, Astronomer Royal, Degenerate star, Egg Nebula, Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, Hooker telescope, Kepler’s laws, Penumbra, and Yerkes Observatory. Many up-to-date finds are included; for example, we learn that legislation has been enacted in parts of the U.S. to protect important observatory sites from the damaging effects of unnecessary lighting in nearby cities; the highest quasar redshift measured by 2007 was 6.43; Pluto is no longer categorized as a major planet. About 300 excellent color photographs and illustrations, unusual for a moderately priced dictionary, supplement the text. Among them are 20 new star maps by distinguished illustrator Wil Tirion and photographs from various space missions and the Hubble Space Telescope. Ample see and see also references guide the reader from one topic to another; references to related dictionary entries are highlighted in color. Cambridge Illustrated Dictionary of Astronomy, notable for authoritative, up-to-date definitions supplemented by color illustrations and photographs, is highly recommended for high-school, academic, special, and public libraries. --Nancy Cannon Review Praise for Mitton's Cambridge Dictionary of Astronomy "[an] authoritative work...both amateur and professional astronomers will find the Cambridge Dictionary useful...an important resource." Library Journal' ... the most thorough and carefully assembled reference resource for teachers and enthusiasts of astronomy.' - Spaceflight' This is a ... book that I feel should be on the bookshelves of anyone interested in or studying astronomy.' - Brian Tmbrell, F.A.S. Newsletter"With this dictionary Mitton...offers a welcome addition to the reference collection. This volume continues the excellent tradition of reference works in astronomy produced by Cambridge, including the previously published Cambridge Dictionary of Astronomy (2001), also be Mitton. What makes this newer title unique is the up-to-date selection of approximately 1,300 defined terms and the addition of 300 full-color images and illustrations.... The definitions retain the same clarity and substance...with the added features that the words to be defined are in a colored font, as are the see also references. ...Recommended." - CHOICE"This is a beautiful volume ... It is easy to use and just the right size for easy access. This dictionary is so well done and so reasonably priced that I can make the unusual recommendation that everyone should own a copy. ... This astronomical dictionary is well worth its modest cost to have in at least every library with a science or natural history collection. - Mark A. Wilson, American Reference Books Annual
