The first time I looked at the night sky through binoculars was a real "wow" moment. You can see so many more stars than with the naked eye, especially in an urban environment. This book is a guide to 99 places to see, mostly things other than stars. The book starts with an introductory section about types of binoculars and how best to use them. The sights are grouped by season and there are fold out maps that show roughly where to find each object in the sky.. Each object has a page to itself that includes a detailed location diagram and a chatty description of the object and what you might expect to see. It would have been good to have actual pictures (or drawings) of the objects because sometimes it's hard to decide whether you've found it or not.
While this is an excellent book, I have found that I hardly ever use it. Maybe it's because my skies are never very dark, so the experience will always be a little anti-climactic. Maybe it's because I've found I want more than just looking, so I got into photography. Maybe it's because I haven't tried big binoculars on a tripod. Maybe it's because I think it's just for binoculars, but there's nothing to stop you turning a camera or telescope on these objects. Whatever the reason, when I rediscover that wow factor this book will still be there as a clear guide to some of the more visible objects in the sky, and then I'll start using it again.
