5.0 out of 5 stars excellent for beginners AND experienced amateur astronomers, 16 Dec 2009
By 
This review is from: Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars: 250+ Wonderful Sky Objects to See and Explore (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series) (Paperback)
I was very pleasantly surprised by this book! This book and a pair of binoculars is enough to start stargazing, so it is excellent book for all beginners. Charts of constellations are clear and show stars up to 5th magnitude. There are more than 250 described objects which you can see and explore with binoculars. Each object is accompanied with detailed instructions how to find it and with detailed finder chart, which shows stars up to 9th magnitude. The book is full of excellent images, taken by amateur astronomers. As such, it is a real treasure for everyone, from beginners to experienced amateur astronomers.

An extra bonus for all beginners is the first part of the book, which contains a brief introduction in basic astronomy and astrophysics. So, in one book you get an intro to astronomy AND a complete guide on how to start and what to observe. You don't need to buy a telescope (of course, it doesn't hurt if you already have one) - this book shows that with just a pair of binoculars there are plenty of interesting objects to see up there (if you already have a telescope, you can see them even better).

The book is worth every penny.
