So, you have an older kid, (I'm thinking ten-ish and up), who just got an entry level telescope and wants to look at actual identifiable objects. This book is aimed right at that sweet spot.

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.

I have just bought my first telescope, don't know what I am doing and really do not understand the potential of this new interest. I have bought loads of books, most of them very complicated even though they state beginner.
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.

I thought this was a well written introduction to small telecope astronomy. Thiswould have been really useful to me when I first started using a small telescope.

pretty basic but would give someone with a new telescope some interesting things to look at without too much difficulty. Well worth the download.
