Astronomy text book

https://d3bxy9euw4e147.cloudfront.ne...OP_RoX1Ths.pdf

At over 1200 pages there's very little that this comprehensive "introduction to astronomy" doesn't touch on.
May be not in complete depth but could be very useful for the novice to understand what astronomy is all about.

Looks pretty good for an undergrad text. Especially for 1st and 2nd year courses. Nice find
