Here are the basic equations I wish
I had at my fingertips when I'm enjoying amateur astronomy. Instead of having to hunt through

Any suggestions for additional equations?
I figure that if you're in a section called "Advanced" and since
you followed that link to "Technical Data", you're probably interested
in some serious amateur astronomy. If you'd like to delve into a bit of the actual
physics and get a taste of professional astronomy, consider following through
this online Second
Semester Astronomy Course from the University of Tennessee. It's
really quite good, with a lot of interactive simulations. Subjects
Radiation & Spectra, The Sun, The Sun's Power, Birth of Stars, Deaths of Stars, Celestial Distances,
Analyzing Starlight, Stars: Celestial Census, Galaxies, Cosmology
