Consider if you want to know what telescope/Binos to buy,
This review is from: Stargazing Basics: Getting Started in Recreational Astronomy (Paperback)
I was really pleased with the section on choosing binoculars and telescopes. It had a good section on eyepieces etc. In fact roughly a third of the book is on explaining the equipment.
It also has some good info on the planets and on Deep Sky Objects. However, it did not go into enough details on how to find these delights.
The book starts with a section on naked eye viewing which was really too short. Anyone wanting to start astronomy should be made aware just how much can be seen and learned with their own eyes without any equipment. In this regard the book did not do enough.
In summary the book was fairly good on choosing equipment but a bit light on explaining what is there to be seen.
