Hundreds of Night Sky Objects to See in a Home Telescope – and How to Find Them
Easily the best astronomy handbook. Thoroughly recommended for beginners through to advanced level astronomy.
Large-format eyepiece views, positioned side-by-side, show objects exactly as they are seen through a telescope.
With over 150,000 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.
With improved directions, updated tables of astronomical information and an expanded night-by-night Moon section, it has never been easier to explore the night sky on your own. Many additional resources are available on the accompanying website, www.cambridge.org/turnleft.
