I started with the Patrick Moore Observers guide to astronomy ( 1962 - still in use) and there have been many changes in the past 50+ years - not least with viewing equipment and scientific discoveries about the stars and the planets.
DK guides tend to be very good on pictures and illustrations - this one really makes the subject come alive although care is needed when viewing some of the pictures which you will NOT see through anything less than powerful amateur or professional telescopes or using time lapes photographs. These technologies are all introduced .. As many modern astronomical books tend to do this I have not penalised this one.
Starting with a Universe overview the book covers " viewing with binoculars and telescopes , the heavens views by month ( charts - showing stares and planets position up to 2019) , planets , asteroids , meteors , constellations.
There will be more detailed books but this is a great starter for anyone getting a flavour of a fascinating study , hobby and technical profession.
For all ( reading) ages....

Very good, class loved sharing it and reading about stars the text was well set out and interesting. The photos and diagrams are super. Sometimes you haven't got 20. Words to write for a review and just to star it would actually be enough
