This practical illustrated guide is the ideal introduction to observational astronomy. The first half, 'Beginning Astronomy', explains where, when and how to observe, what equipment to use (whether with the naked eye, binoculars or a small telescope), and how to record your observations. The second section, 'Exploring the Sky', looks in more detail at all the objects the amateur can view, from objects in our Solar System to deep-sky objects. The book is illustrated with more than 150 colour images and a complete set of star maps.Dimensions: 198mm x 126mm. 208 pages in paperback.
