    Night Sky Observers Guide – Vol 1

    Great Observation Guide for amateur astronomers

    Observation reports on each object

    Suits Telescope 8 inch and up

    Night Sky Observers Guide – Vol 1 is for Autumn and Winter (Spring and Summer for the Southern Hemisphere)

    The original purpose of The Night Sky Observer’s Guide was to close the gap between observing literature and modern optics. It provided the owner of a medium- or large-aperture telescope with some idea of what to look for in such instruments — both what objects can be seen, and what details may be seen within these objects. Now, with four volumes, it has become an indispensable resource for observing.

    The Night Sky Observer’s Guide – Vol 1 is especially aimed at amateurs interested in observing galaxies, nebula, and clusters, and also includes double and variable stars. The most famous or visually impressive of these have written descriptions similar to those for other deep-sky objects. For most of the deep-sky objects covered, there is a brief discription as seen through two or more telescopes apertures such as 8/10″, 12/14″, 16/18″, 20/22″ and at different powers. Eyepiece impression sketches are provided for hundreds of the objects. Although this book was intended for Northern Latitudes as is evident by the volume names, it is a very useful addition to any astronomers library of observational aids.

    Each chapter is devoted to a constellation, with general comments on the first page. The second page shows a map of the constellation facing a table of stellar data, which usually fills the entire page. The remaining pages of each chapter contain photographs, sketches, and finding charts. Throughout, descriptions of objects include views seen through different-sized instruments.

    Andromeda, Aquarius, Aries, Auriga,Camelopardalis, Cancer, Canis Major, Canis Minor, Cassiopeia, Cepheus, Cetus, Columba, Eridanus, Fornax, Gemini, Lacerta, Lepus, Lynx, Monoceros, Orion, Pegasus, Perseus, Pisces, Piscis Austrinus, Puppis, Pyxis, Sculptor, Taurus, and Triangulum.
