Burnhams Celestial Handbooks may be a little dated, layout-wise, but I think they remain the definitive guidebooks for anyone who is in any way interested in astronomy. They are so full of fascinating data, not just for the observer, but for anyone who wants to know more about the stars and the constellations through to the more distant galaxies and deep space.

ROBERT BURNHAM'S book could be described as the real "Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy".
As almost a lifetimes work unfolds before your eyes, have a thought for the man who created this work of art for us poor sorry souls,both amateur and professional. He truly is a wonder and a friend of this universe and to the people in it.
