5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read with lots of information, 15 May 2013
This review is from: Stargazing For Dummies (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a wonderful insight into the world of stargazing, covering everything from how the planet spins and why we have day and night, through to the complexities of binoculars, telescopes and cameras. And of course there is a lot on star constellations and what time of year you should look for each one.

It is full of fascinating nuggets of information - for example your body enhances your night vision using a chemical called rhodopsin, and that using a red torch will help you to keep your night vision if you really need to shine a light to find something.

The author leads you into the actual business of stargazing very logically, in small steps that are not at all scary.

The only downside to the book is that you can't read it while you're out stargazing because you need it to be dark, so you have to memorise what you want to look for and then go out and look.

I definitely recommend this book.
