Very good book. For someone new to the practical aspects of astronomy this book is well worth having. For example the tables on eyepiece comparision and filter comaparison are very helpful. As a matter of interest there is a downloadable article which is a update on the article in the book about DSLR cameras for use in astrophotography. A lot of book for the money so is very good value.

Great Astronomy book for beginners and slightly more advanced stargazers. Has details about almost everything astronomy related, from equipment to viewing.
A good book to buy before investing in a telescope.

I was looking for a book to fill in all the gaps in my basic knowledge and expand it from sound foundations - this book ticks all the boxes. Excellent. If you want to do the same you can't get better than this. A great reference book.

Up to date (in 2011), well written. In the equipment chapters it provides the perfect combination of opinion and survey of what is available. Overall, an excellent book. Even inspired me to get out my binoculars again.

This book takes you through everything you need to know about all aspects of telescope buying before getting into astronomy.

It is well laid out and has many examples of telescopes, accessories and so on. It also lets you know what you can expect to see with the different instruments.
