About My Library
Library of the Canterbury Astronomical Society (CAS), Christchurch, New Zealand, held at CAS's West Melton Observatory (-43° 29.9'S, 172° 20.98'E). The collection currently has a median publication year c. 1960, but is gradually being updated. Remarks in the Comments field are intended to give potential readers a general idea of the topic and level of difficulty for each book, but should not be interpreted as a review.
