Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Useful book laid out in an easy-to-read format for novices such as me. Each month has a "map" of the sky showing which constellations, planets and moons are visible with or without a telescope at various dates and times of the night. Plenty of text provides further details.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who has been following the BBC's Stargazing Live series recently might be interested in this booklet of star charts for the coming year. Authors Nigel Henbest and Heather Cooper's notes that accompany each month's star chart are very clear and easy to understand. I would recommend this book to both beginners without any equipment and to those who have either binoculars or a small telescope.

As usual, Philip's yearly Stargazing book is full of fantastic info and helped a lot when watching Stargazing live. I was able to understand what Prof Brian Cox was talking about. This is the third year that I've bought the book and will buy one again next year. Brilliant!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I get an Astronomy year book most years to see what's on and where to look. This book has plenty of critical dates and locations to look for in the sky over 2012. It's easy to follow and makes an ideal companion for those wioth a small telescope and Planispere disk. It's easy to use for both the beginner and more experience sky gazer alike. A good purchase that will help me find out more about my hobby.
