I am really enjoying using this book to plan out my observations rather than just take the telescope out and observe at random. I find it works well in conjunction with a monthly magazine which keeps you up to date on new occurrences. There are many new things I have not observed before included in the book as well as old favourites and I find it well written and well structured.

It was brought for me as a birthday present by my workmates in a call centre and I am forever being asked how many objects I have observed! So not only is it helping me with my interest but it is also encouraging lots of other people to find out a bit more about Astronomy.

amazon shortchanges e-edition 1 Aug 2010
By vivere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Amazon removed all color from the e-edition, although it misleadingly shows color in the preview of the book.
Yes, I know, you cannot see color on the kindle, but you can see color using the kindle reader in iphone, ipad and PC.
The value of the ebook is diminished greatly. Shame!
I gave four stars because I do not want to punish the excellent content and pictures.
It is zero stars for the e edition.

Great book for stargazing planning! 24 Oct 2010
By Luis Miguel Cruz Santo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book provides a good description and insight of the 1001 objects it describes. It is organised by months which helps in doing some stargazing planning and viewing sequences. Some object summaries are short, but generaly go strait to the point, what makes it a great book to better know objects and their important features/characteristics. Nevertheless, I think the book misses important images - there are splendid named objects with no picture on the side, and as such I rank it 4/4.5
Clear Skies,

By Carol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
fantastic guide and well written. I saw an article he wrote in Astronomy magazine and found it to be so exciting I ordered the book. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition! I'll have it at my side when I'm am observing the sky with my telescope.
