By the early 80s a revolution in amateur optics was underway thanks to the inexpensive and easily-constructed mounting for large aperture Newtonian reflectors invented by John Dobson. With these big “light buckets” one can see scores of emission nebulae, hundreds of star clusters, and thousands of galaxies, with details visible in virtually all of them.

Unfortunately observing literature failed to keep pace with the optics. The purpose of The Night Sky Observer’s Guide was to close this gap by providing 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.

ARRANGEMENT OF THE GUIDE

Each chapter is devoted to a constellation. The first page is devoted to general comments about the constellation. The second page is a map of the constellation which faces a stellar data table which usually fills the entire page. The remaining pages of each chapter contain photographs, sketches and finding charts – and all of these pages include written descriptions of objects as seen through different sized instruments.

Loads of observation reports from Aussie amateur astronomers, great guide for southern latitudes.
