Cambridge Guide to Stars and Planets
The Cambridge Guide to Stars and Planets is a working manual and comprehensive handbook that contains charts of the stars in all 88 constellations as well as a concise overview of astronomy. The exquisitely-drafted constellation maps enable sky gazers to recognize stars with the naked eye and to identify the brighter nebula and galaxies. Maps are paired with lucid explanations of a constellation's most interesting features. Astronomy experts Patrick Moore and Wil Tirion provide a comprehensive but succinct pocket guide that can be used at any time from any place on Earth, charting astronomical phenomena through 2003.
