Product Description

Review

[Review of earlier edition: ] Astronomy is cooler than birdwatching and a lot less creepy than spying on your cottage neighbours. Get started with this beginner's guide, newly updated and revised.

[Review of earlier edition: ] A serious contender for the title of best all-around introduction to binocular astronomy. [Review of earlier edition: ] This is a handy-dandy guide to heavenly viewing by using--what the authors dub--"the poor person's telescope." ....This 208-page book is packed with easy to use star maps, as well as a month-by-month guide to the best objects to study. So latch onto a copy of the practical guide and step outside for a sky full of enjoyment.

[Review of earlier edition: ] What distinguishes this volume aren't the charts but rather the practical advice and clear instruction.--John Sledge"Mobile Press-Register" (04/10/2011)

[Review of earlier edition: ] You don't need a fancy, expensive telescope to enjoy the twinkly treasures of the nighttime sky. This handy, compact guide offers practical advice on buying the right kind of binoculars for stargazing, dozens of charts and graphs, and a bounty of tips on observing -- and contemplating -- the moon, planets, comets, asteroids, nebulas and other celestial bodies that come out after the sun goes down.--Neil Pond"American Profile" (05/09/2010)

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Edition 27 Aug. 2012
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book itself deserves a high rating as it itself is a great book for binocular astronomers and I recommend it.

What I'm unhappy about is that the ad clearly shows the item for sale being the latest 3rd edition which has just been updated. But what I received was the Second edition. Clearly labeled on the front cover as the second edition.

So if you are ordering this item, be aware you may not get the latest updated version of this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on what you can see in the night sky with binoculars! 20 Aug. 2014
By science geek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has really good pictures and information on a lot of the neat things to see in the night sky. The font size is a little smaller than I like, but it is one of the best books on backyard astronomy with binoculars that I have read. I like that it shows where to find certain objects, and what the night sky will look like to the unaided eye for each month of the year. Overall a great book that I would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to the point and guess what you can actually apply what you can read 18 April 2013
By Flyfisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was expecting even after having read the synopsis, and some parts of chapters a a somewaht complicated "How to" book Quite the contrary it is easy to apply the suggestions and methods proposed.

Difficult to beat for the price and and really fun to possess if the stars and the milky way are of some interest .

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Comprehensive - covers northern & southern hemispheres 19 July 2013
By Robert White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good guide - lots of details for both beginner and veteran star gazers. Only thing that keeps me from giving 5 stars is the some what small format (older eyes need bigger print - especially in the dark!)
