The lack of textbooks and reading materials about astronomy prompts the Department of Astronomy of the Rizal Technological University to embark on a textbook-writting project in various fields that students in BS-Astronomy Technology will take. I have finished writing Astronomy, An Introduction and this is the second volume in the series. If time, energy and resources would allow, I should be able to prepare the texts in stars and galaxies, astronomy education, astronomy and philisophy, and astronomy entrepreneurship. That would be as far as I could go. The other major courses in the program could be assigned to the other faculty members. The key in this endeavor is to keep on writing, so we could have, right in the RTU, the books needed in the program.
