"With over 100,000 copies sold since first publication, this is one of the most popular astronomy books of all time. It is a unique guidebook to the night sky, providing all the information you need to observe a whole host of celestial objects. With a new spiral binding, this edition is even easier to use outdoors at the telescope and is the ideal beginner's book. Keeping its distinct one-object-per-spread format, this edition is also designed for Dobsonian telescopes, as well as for smaller reflectors and refractors, and covers Southern hemisphere objects in more detail. Large-format eyepiece views, positioned side-by-side, show objects exactly as they are seen through a telescope, and with improved directions, updated tables of astronomical informationand an expanded night-by-night Moon section, it has never been easier to explore the night sky on your own"--


Guy Consolmagno is a Jesuit brother at the Specola Vaticana (Vatican Observatory), dividing his time between Tucson, Arizona and Castel Gandolfo, Italy. He studies the origin and evolution of moons and asteroids in our solar system and uses a 3.5" catadioptic and an 8" Dobsonian. Dan M. Davis is a professor of geophysics in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at Stony Brook University, New York. He researches the formation of mountain belts on Earth. His observations for this book were made with a 2.4" refractor and with 8" and 10" Dobsonians.


New edition of one of the most popular astronomy books of all time. An ideal beginner's book to the night sky.

Written for beginners, this superb book is a complete guide to the night sky. Now covering Southern hemisphere objects and Dobsonian telescopes in detail, it has never been easier for stargazers of all ages and backgrounds to find celestial objects for themselves.
