A Field Guide to the Stars and Planets
This edition features even more color photographs of the planets and their satellites, nebulae, and other beautiful objects. There are also detailed maps of the moon's surface and charts showing which planets are visible on any given night. Novices will find "tours" of the sky, explaining in detail how to find each object. More experienced observers will appreciate the charts, tables, and diagrams showing the best double stars, variable stars, nebulae, and other objects to observe. No special equipment is needed to use this book; the brightest stars and planets are visible with the naked eye. A pair of ordinary binoculars will reveal a surprising amount of detail. For those with telescopes, this Field Guide will provide a single ready reference to the objects in the entire sky.
