Product description

Review

“The definitive guide to observing deep sky objects such as globular clusters, galaxies, planetary nebulae and supernova remnants. … it gives answers to lots of practical questions that you haven't even realized you wanted to know such as why you should invite other people to observe with you, or share your hobby with others, or how could a computer be helpful with deep sky objects.” (AstroMadness.com, December, 2016)

“This is a book aimed at fairly serious stargazers, even though the tone and some chapters seem suited for beginners. … Summing Up: Recommended. Professionals and practitioners.” (D. J. Van Domelen, Choice, Vol. 54 (3), November, 2016)

From the Back Cover

This updated second edition has all of the information needed for your successful forays into deep sky observing. Coe uses his years of experience to give detailed practical advice about how to find the best observing site, how to make the most of the time spent there, and what equipment and instruments to take along. There are comprehensive lists of deep sky objects of all kinds, along with Steve's own observations describing how they look through telescopes with apertures ranging from 4 inches to 36 inches (0.1 - 0.9 meters).

Binocular observing also gets its due, while the lists of objects have been amended to highlight only the best targets. A new index makes finding targets easier than ever before, while the selection of viewing targets has been revised from the first edition. Most of all, this book is all about how to enjoy astronomy. The author's enthusiasm and sense of wonder shine through every page as he invites you along on a tour of some of the most beautiful and fascinating sites in the deep sky, with the improved object list making sure your choice of a faint cluster, hazy nebula or distant galaxy will all be equally rewarding.
