Book Description

13 Oct 2005
This guide to the night sky makes it simple and easy to pinpoint specific stars and identify them by name. It uses transparent overlays and page-sized images of the night sky to identify stars, nebulas, galaxies and 15 of the most interesting constellations. Each major constellation is presented as a double page spread with a transparent overlay. Details include: Name of constellation; Location, luminosity, dimensions; Best season to observe; History and characteristics; Map of the constellation and its surroundings; Transparency showing the outline of the constellation and its surrounding stars; and Full page night sky photograph of the constellation. A wiro-binding (concealed within a hardback spine) allows the book to open flat at any page to keep the hands free for adjusting a telescope or viewing equipment. Attractively illustrated with clear star maps and spectacular photographs, this is an accurate and handy reference to the night sky.

I hesitated before buying it, even second-hand, as I thought it looked a little childish, but I'd very much recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about the night sky.

Only covers maybe 20 constellations, and some of those are southern-hemisphere only (so I can't see them from the UK) - but the author's enthusiasm, the detail about features you can find around the constellations, and the very well thought-out presentation style make it an excellent book.
