A good solid book on about how to do things with your telescope 31 Mar. 2010
By William D. Steen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this book. It is very readable, with enough humorous twists to keep me reading almost straight through. This is a quality book throughout with lots of "how-to's" in it. I am glad that I made the purchase.

This is an intermediate book that assumes you know at least a little about telescopes and astronomy. Many good pictures. Made with quality materials.

Whether you are star gazing or into imaging, this book is a good reference. I especially liked the imaging section because it's very current and user friendly.
