5th edition slightly improved on 4th edition
15 June 2019
I know this book quite well.
It's a DIY backyard star hopper's guide to interest targets in the night sky
Could be double-stars, nebulae, globulars or galaxies... the latter not easy to see in light polluted skies.
It's a practical guide on what to see. The sort of book you need with your first telescope.
It's also highly rated, and for sure one of the best books for practical amateur astronomers who want to get out of the armchair and actually see something through their telescope!!
Friendly writing, the 5th edition has an improved and expanded section on finding planets.
The 4th edition itself was a major rewrite and upgrade of the 3rd edition.
Anyway, one of my favourite books on backyard astronomy. Enjoy.
