[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)

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