This delightful book covers the 50 things to see and some of them are: 'North Star, Venus, Orion Nebula, Mars, Jupiter, The Milky Way, Comets, the International Space Station, and even birds'. Just a fascinating read for me which I will go back and refer to after my telescope is purchased. At the end of the book there are schedules for total solar eclipses and Constellation maps for the Northern Hemisphere. I would say that this is an excellent as well as educational book for all ages! - Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

This was the book I was searching for. So simply written for a numpty like me. Clear diagrams on where to look and most importantly what it will look like using a cheap telescope, absolutely brilliant. I am working though the book and I currently do two pages a night (clear sky's willing).Great fun and has kept me interested.
It doesn't oversell what you'll be able to see, but it does direct you to all of the top visible gee-whiz sights. The author doesn't patronize or condescend, but rather welcomes you into this very rewarding hobby. The general tone is cheerfully conversational and the guidance is reliable. It doesn't have a sappy "dummies" vibe and it's not overly technical. In our experience this has been just a top-drawer and rewarding introductory guide. A solid choice.
