Very well written and illustrated.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cosmic Challenge: The Ultimate Observing List for Amateurs (Hardcover)
I bought this book for two reasons; to get ideas on what else to observe- giving more perspective to my many Star Atlases and second I enjoy Harrington's writing style and his approach to amateur astronomy.
In nutshell, the chapters collect a group of targets based on the telescope aperture size. If you have 12" + telescope, then you'll make the most of this book. For apertures less than 12" there are still plenty of gems to point your telescope at.
It's a beautiful and well presented book that can serve you well for years to come. Highly recommended.
