The aim of this booklet is to offer a close description of the planetary nebulae together with the proper astronomical observations and their interpretation. enormous realization is given to the evolution of those gadgets in addition to to their actual features. I t is was hoping that the publication be priceless to either complicated examine employees and to scholars with a few historical past in astronomy. during this regard, the e-book should still function a textual content in addition to a reference paintings. the various tables incorporated are anticipated to be invaluable for either reasons. The references are typically now not incorporated within the textual content aside from old reasons with a view to enhance clarity. References are given on the finish of every bankruptcy including adequate textual content to explain their content material. No try out has been made to make the record of references whole; to the contrary it has more often than not been constrained to the latest literature at the topic which in flip refers to previous examine. back, exceptions were made for references of old curiosity.
