Summary

A user-friendly companion for stargazers of all ages, this classic beginner's guide describes all the main sights of the night sky: stars, constellations, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. Newly updated, its twelve chapters cover each month, identifying planet positions and eclipses. Most phenomena are visible to the naked eye, and all are within reach of binoculars or a small telescope. Includes sections on observing the moon and planets.
