perfect beginners book...,
This review is from: The Practical Astronomer (Dk Astronomy) (Hardcover)
i purchased this book along with a telescope ,and i have to say its pretty much perfect for a novice to astronomy.
ive since bought a couple more expensive books,but i keep going back to this one.!!
great illustrations and photo's. kept simple but full of information all the same. the star charts at end of the book are brilliant. the book covers many basic aspects. setting up scopes,different types of scopes, how to observe planets ,the moon, deep sky objects,its all there. very happy.
