Every three years, the leading experts in detectors for astronomy gather together to exchange information and form professional relationships. This series of meetings is entitled Scientific Detectors for Astronomy. The meeting has been held six times, with the last four publishing hardcover proceedings. Nearly all leading astronomical observatories and manufacturers attend this meeting, . The memories and the spirit of the Scientific Detectors for Astronomy Workshop (SDW) remain fresh and strong. For us, this was a very special event, a great gathering of what may be one of the friendliest and most cooperative technical communities on our little planet. 'Immo Appenzeller's text is a complete and comprehensive introduction to the subject. The book covers all relevant aspects of astronomical spectroscopy from the basic physical principles of spectroscopic measurements and their technical implementation in real astronomical instruments to the principles of observations and data reduction.
