'… a useful beginner's guide to the binocular sky.' Sky and Telescope 'Binocular astronomy is currently enjoying something of a renaissance, so it is a pleasure to see this new edition of Patrick Moore's super book, which helped usher in the new era when it was originally published in 1987. Since then, this has been the introduction to the night sky that I've recommended more than any other … If you know of someone whose enthusiasm for the night sky has been inspired, perhaps by recent views of Comet Hyakutake, I can think of no better gift than a pair of binoculars and a copy of this excellent book.' Brian Kelly, The Observatory
'This book would be a good buy for someone new to astronomy as it covers all aspects of observational work at a fairly basic level and would continue to be a useful information source for many years to come.' Linda Roberton, Astronomy Now
'This is the third edition of this useful book ... It is written in Patrick Moore's well-known, easy-to-read, personal style ... This book is a good general introduction to the night sky using binoculars and it should encourage the reader to go and look for themselves.' Alan Dowdell, Webb Society Reviews
Patrick Moore's painstakingly researched Exploring the Night Sky with Binoculars will help and encourage both casual and serious observers of our awe-inspiring universe. Sections on basic astronomy, selection of binoculars, detailed constellation maps and descriptions of stars, comets and galaxies are included in this beautifully illustrated manual.See all Product description

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Initially I found it quite difficult for the same reasons commented on by other reviewers. However with the help of a lot of astronomy software which I downloaded free from the web, which produced more easily understandable star maps ( which importantly were accurate to the day of the observation ) I was able to get started.
Once I had cracked the first half dozen constellations, the contents of Moores book clicked with me and I found it a valuable source of extra and more detailed information.
However I would criticise the book from teh perspective that it does not really start at the very begining and the constellation charts are too busy ordetailed for the very beginner making them confusing. Although I think this book is good, I would not recommend it alone for the absolute beginner.
