History of Computerized Telescopes

Scanned Works With Permission


Peter Abrahams has scanned some of the references from the 1980s, with the permission of the editor / publisher (Russ), who provided copies of most of these - the remainder are still easily available from booksellers. They are scanned at 600dpi B&W, and collated; illustrations are scanned greyscale in separate files. The texts are not OCR'd.
