bag came well packed and fitted Surface Pro 3 + keyboard perfectly. The outside pocket also fits all the adapters, mice etc that are needed with it. Bag looks nice and appears well made.

Book looks unfinished. Frequent references to a map that does not exist. Images not reproduced well. CUP has done better in the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent calandar, 18 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Zauber der Sterne 2014 (Calendar)
Excellent although slightly large calendar containing some very dramatic images. Slightly disappointed that more astronomical information was not contained. I have always liked the TWAN images and this is one of the few publications they have.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good case for the Surface pro tablet, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The overall look and feel of this product is very good. I did have some issues with it early on as it would not close with the Type keyboard in the folder. I left the tablet in for a couple of days and I think it expanded so now the tablet does fit in and it looks very smart. Snugg were very helpful in resolving the issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Kindle edition, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been looking forward to this book but the delays in getting the print edition out meant I thought I would buy the Kindle edition instead. Kindle books always lack the pleasure of a book but in this case the images seem well reproduced and the material is good. The object selection is from James Dunlop's catalogue of southern objects. The brief history of southern DSO cataloging is also good. As with all O'Meara books it is worth gettign and i Look forward to the paper edition in good time.

I had seen this in the shops and it looked well made and having not bought it when I should I ordered it. The product still looks well made and is just the right side for what I need

2.0 out of 5 stars Cape Observations review, 24 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this book is a bit of a liberty. It is poorly reproduced and obviously packed to make as few pages as possible which reduces the readability of the material. The original book contains many drawings of interest along with tables none of which are reproduced in the book making it even less useful. I could not possibly recommend this and I would not have bought it if I had known of its short comings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent facsimile, 13 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
2009 sees the 150th anniverary of the publication of the first modern guide to observing the night sky in Webb's Celestial Objects for Common Telescopes. This book is an excellent facsimile reproduction of the first edition of this book (it went through 6 edtions). The only missing thing is the moon map. I find it interesting to read the thoughts of astronomers from 150 years ago and bringing out this publication meets this need as original copies of this book are very hard to find now
