Many of you may have looked through the 3 volumes of Burnham's Celestial Handbook (we have one set in our library in the club office) or had heard about the handbook.  The Burnham's Celestial Handbooks is one of the best selling observation handbook but the writer had not made a fortune out of it.

If you want to know about the story about the writer, Robert Burnham Jr., you can read the story from the following link:

Scroll down and the article titled "Sky Writer" is at the very bottom of the page.

hanks CH to initiate this man Robert Burnham, Jr. He was one of my “educator” in my early days of sky watching. My archive has an image of him



Note that there is another man named “Robert Burnham”. http://big5.china.com.cn/gate/bi ... n/new_xq.asp?id=938
He is not the Burnham (the book author) we talk about.
