It's a great book for advanced observers.
on 5 June 2001
Being a beginning observer, i found the observations in the book rather difficult to reproduce. I expect that i will appreciate the book more after a lot of practice and patience. On the other hand, the book is an encouragement to do so, for i was amazed to read how many details within deep-sky objects can be seen, even with modest equipment. Finally i would remark, that the author lives at an excellent location for deep-sky observing, so not all of us might be able to see what he describes.
