  • About the Edition

    A guide for observing the night sky with an emphasis on using optical aides such as telescopes and binoculars. Also touches on naked-eye observing with sections on sky colors such as rainbows, auroras, the zodiacal light and meteors. Understanding astronomical time is also detailed. This is not a guide to identifying the constellations. The authors assume the reader will already have that knowledge. The highlight of the book are the numerous and excellent paintings, illustrations and diagrams by John Polgreen.

Whether you are a professional astronomer, a beginner or educator this book is designed for you. The over page guide includes comprehensive information about upcoming astronomical events and references.

    The Night Sky Observer's Guide also includes many photographs and maps that did not appear in the magazine. Though both the Observer's Guide and now The Night Sky Observer's Guide were aimed at amateurs especially interested in observing galaxies, nebulae and clusters, neither the magazine nor these volumes have neglected double and variable stars.
