In any case, I'm also interested in introductory textbooks for Celestial mechanics. I'm under the impression that any serious study of celestial mechanics requires a lot of knowledge of the Hamiltonian formalism and Hamiltonian perturbation theories (but that comes from reading books on analytical mechanics). The few books I know on celestial mechanics are quite hard and somewhat old.

I want to see the mathematical derivation of things like why orbits around the sun are elliptical in Taylor book, thanks for the recommendations!Foundations of Mechanicscontains a ridiculously abstract and mathematically-sophisticated exposition of celestial mechanics but it won't teach you much physics, or indeed how to solve many practical problems (!).
