PREFACE
This
book
is
intended
for
students
in
civil
engineering
who
have
had
no
other
course
in
astronomy
and
for
other
students
who
wish
to
do
some
observational
work
in
practical
astronomy.
The
principal
aim
has
been
to
present
fundamental
ideas
rather
than
to
include
various
methods
of
observing.
The
simple
exercises
at
the
end
of
each
chapter
are
designed
to
emphasize
these
ideas.
The
data
for
these
exercises
are
so
chosen
thatthe
sample
pages
of
the
American
Ephemeris
included
in
this
book
are
made
available
for
their
solution.
If
a
shorter
and
more
elementary
course
is
desirable,
the
para-
graphs
marked
with
an
asterisk
may
be
omitted,
also
Chapters
XII
and
XIV
which
are
of
somewhatmore
advanced
character.
It
has
been
assumed
throughout
the
book
thatthe
observer
is
in
the
northern
hemisphere.
I
am
indebted
to
Mr.
Sidney
McCuskey
for
his
general
assist-
ance
in
the
preparation
of
the
manuscript
and
help
with
the
proof.
For
the
preparation
of
all
the
line
drawings
I
am
indebted
to
Professor
W.
E.
Nudd,
and
to
Mr.
Frank
Herzegh
for
Figs.
33,
38
and
41.
I
take
pleasure
also
in
expressing
my
sincere
thanks
to
Dr.
John
E.
Merrill,
who
has
carefully
read
and
criticized
the
completemanuscript
and
has
offered
valuable
suggestions.
