Description

Is there anything more amazing than the night sky? You’ve seen the stars and the constellations—but there’s so much more to discover! George Moromisato’s guide introduces you to 101 sights, from old favorites like Saturn’s famous rings to awe-inspiring wonders like the Andromeda Galaxy. Learn what to look for and when and where to find it! The sights are ranked by beauty, accessibility, and historical importance, and the guide features at least one full-color photograph for each entry, including many from NASA. As an added bonus, the author’s astrophotography tips provide information about taking pictures of the night sky. This astronomy book is perfect for beginners, as many objects can be seen with the unaided eye or binoculars, while others simply require a small telescope.

    The book looks great – I like the dark background to the text, that’s helpful for keeping your eyes adjusted at night. The pictures you selected are good too, it makes the book fun to look at, which will probably be helpful in keeping my young cousin engaged, who I am giving one copy to.

    I’m a little disappointed that Mizar/Alcor didn’t make the list, instead pushed off by Epsilon Lyrae. I think its cool that you don’t need equipment to distinguish them, they’re in a easily identifiable constellation, and it may be a sextuple system. But, I’m sure anyone who’s spent time looking at the stars will have one or two favorites they wanted to see in the list.

    All in all its a good little guide. I’m glad I bought two so I can keep one for myself.
