Product description

Review

'… written by an outstanding observer, [this book] can only be greatly recommended to all who ask themselves, for instance, how to observe easily and without ambiguities some marvels of the solar system.' Ciel et Terre

'Don't consider the low page count: this is a large-format book that is excellent value and I would recommend this book to all beginning observers.' David Arditti, Astronomy Now

'Stephen James O'Meara's book … is testament to one man's affliction with the shapes and colours that continually transcend the velvet backdrop of space. Through his passion, the book draws the reader into an ever changing, lively night time display.' Mark Mortimer, Universe Today

'O'Meara, a popular and knowledgeable author renowned for his skills of observation, has succeeded in producing a comprehensive beginner's guide to viewing the Sun, Moon and planets using binoculars … The text is split into easily navigated object/phenomena sections and is copiously illustrated … I wasn't aware of some of the observational techniques described, including the conscious deployment of short spells of 'daydreaming' to be able to locate Venus (and other objects) in the daytime! So, inexperienced and experienced observers alike will learn much from this book, and I will doubtless consult it myself from time to time.' Popular Astronomy

Book Description

Stephen James O'Meara shows readers how to observe our Solar System's wonders with ease and clarity, using nothing more than the unaided eye and inexpensive, handheld binoculars. This unique observing guide for amateur astronomers covers lunar and solar eclipses, sunspots, the Moon's craters, the planets, meteors, comets, and more.
