Collins Stars and Planets Guide (Collins Guide),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collins Stars and Planets Guide (Collins Guide) (Paperback)
Collins have made very good guides over the years [especially when I was younger] and this is no exception!
2/3's of the book is about sky maps and the 88 constellations with the remaining 1/3 to do with the Solar System, with a bit on star formation and telescopes. There are good maps on the moon and a bit on Mars too.
The maps/constellations section is excellent, the 'Planets' section could have done with a bit more info, but the book is already 400 pages long so they would have had to make it a two volume set!
This copy is a paperback and because of this will get creases down the spine and general wear and tear if well used.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in Astronomy.
