    Hi Everyone,
       I was thinking of asking for a book on orbital
    mechanics/sat observing for christmas.  What would you
    recommend?  I see that the most recommended is
    _Observing Earth Satellites_ by King-Hele, but that is
    out of print.  Another more recently published book
    ('92) by King-Hele called _A Tapestry Of Orbits_ is
    still in print, but it costs eighty bucks at Amazon,
    (!!!) and I don't even know if it has the stuff I'm
    looking for.  So could anyone recommend a relatively
    cheap book (like under fifty bucks) that teach me
    something about this hobby and let me understand more
    of the technical stuff that is talked about here? 
    Thanks a lot!
